PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man convicted of child molestation has admitted mailing a threatening letter from a western Pennsylvania prison to President Barack Obama — albeit to the wrong address.

Joseph Savage pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to counts of threatening the president and threatening the president’s family.

Prosecutors say Savage was awaiting trial in Fayette County Prison in October 2012 when he sent a letter threatening to “torture and murder” the president and harm a member of the president’s family.

The letter was mailed to 1400 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington. The White House is at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. but received the letter anyway.

Savage is serving 12 1/2 to 25 years on convictions of making terroristic threats, aggravated indecent assault on a child and corruption of minors.
