Alabama Woman Arrested After Police Say She Threatened Gov Over Immigration

A Jasper woman could get five years in jail after authorities say she threatened the life of Alabama's governor over the state's tough law cracking down on illegal immigration.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that 38-year-old Tiffany R. Morales is accused of calling Gov. Robert Bentley's office Sept. 29 and telling a member of his staff: "Tell the governor he has a bullet with his name on it."

Morales, who says her fiance is an illegal immigrant, was arrested Oct. 1 and charged with threatening certain state officers, a felony.

Her lawyer said at a pretrial hearing Friday Morales has medical problems and a nervous condition and shouldn't be considered a threat.

The judge denied Morales' request to reduce her bond and ordered that she undergo a mental evaluation.
