BOSTON (CBS) – Threatening letters that caused a scare for two Massachusetts lawmakers allegedly came from a New York woman.

Friday, prosecutors charged Roberta Cicora of St. Johnsville with sending letters filled with white powder to the offices of Senator Scott Brown and Attorney General Martha Coakley.

The letters arrived at the offices back in May.

Threats were also sent to a jail and a courthouse in Greenfield.

If convicted, Cicora faces up to five years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine on each count.
