A man has pleaded no contest to a charge that he threatened Rep. David Dreier's (R-Calif.) life, reports the Redlands Daily Facts.

Thomas Aaron Brothers will serve time up to a year in jail and live in a mental health facility for up to a year. Brothers faced a felony charge for threatening a government official.

Witnesses said that he called Dreier's district office several times and made death threats toward the California Republican. According to the testimony of one of Dreier's staffers, Brothers left messages with the office saying that the government was trying to take away his right to wear women's underwear.

Brothers, 41, faces two more felony charges, for making a criminal threat and for making a terrorist threat.
