BISHOPVILLE, S.C. - A South Carolina prison inmate has been charged with making threats against former Gov. Mark Sanford.

The State Law Enforcement Division says 49-year-old Gerald M. Evans of Bishopville has been charged with threatening the life of a public official.

State police say Evans sent a handwritten letter to the then-governor in October threatening Sanford and his family. Authorities did not release details of the letter.

Evans began serving a 30-year sentence for armed robbery in 1994. He is not eligible for parole.

Sanford left office in January.
