    A man who pleaded guilty to leaving a threatening voicemail for Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, telling her she should be 'hung as a traitor' and 'put in front of a firing squad' for the state's COVID restrictions, has been spared jail.

    In court on Monday, District Associate Judge Brendan Greiner agreed to suspend Harvey Hunter Jr.'s one-year jail sentence. 

    Instead, he ordered Hunter, 48, of Stuart, Iowa, to undergo a psychological evaluation, pay a fine and have no contact with the governor for five years.

    A judge agreed to suspend Harvey Hunter Jr.'s, left, one-year prison sentence under a plea deal in which he admitted to leaving Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, right, a threatening voicemail on January 5

    Hunter had entered into a plea agreement with Polk County prosecutors last month and pleaded guilty last month to a misdemeanor charge of second-degree harassment, admitting to leaving the voicemail on January 5.

    He said in his written guilty plea that he 'did threaten to commit bodily injury to a government official' in the voicemail, on a governor's office phone line to solicit input on the state's partial mask mandate, according to KTVO.

    In the voicemail, Hunter - a self-described conservative who has said he believes 'central parts' of QAnon conspiracy theories - could that Reynolds and other politicians should be 'hung for treason for pushing this COVID scam.'

    He also called Reynolds derogatory names for women and said 'you need to be put in front of a firing squad.'
