After spending more than a year in a Kentucky federal prison, Leon Houston is back in East Tennessee.
He was booked into the Knox County Jail on Friday.
Last month, U.S. Magistrate C. Clifford Shirley Jr. ordered the U.S. Marshals to transport Houston back to the area for a motion hearing and scheduling conference, which is set for Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Knoxville.
Houston, 56, was convicted in November 2013 for threatening to kill his former attorney via interstate commerce.
