GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- A Battle Creek man is heading to federal prison for sending a message over the Internet to the Social Security Administration office threatening to "rape little girls" if he didn't get more money.

Timothy Burgess sent the message last December and was sentenced Monday in federal court in Grand Rapids.  Local police and federal agents found more threats sent to women in Battle Creek on his computer.

Burgess was sentenced to two years in prison and three years supervised release.
