By The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ' A Tennessee man who left profanity-laden voicemails at the office of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has agreed to plead guilty in return for a 13-month sentence.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that 62-year-old Glendon Swift of Lenoir (leh-'NOR) City was detained Friday by a federal magistrate pending a change-of-plea hearing on Dec. 20 (

The plea agreement must be approved by a judge. His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

According to an FBI affidavit, Swift left two messages at Cantor's suburban Richmond office on Oct. 27. Swift threatened to "destroy" the congressman, rape his daughter and kill his wife. The calls were traced to Swift's cellphone.

Swift told the FBI that he made the calls when he was drunk and didn't remember the threats.
