The Santa Clara man under arrest for making threats against State Senator Leland Yee is scheduled to be in court Thursday for a plea and bail hearing.

45-year-old Everett Basham faces 10 felony counts and two misdemeanors. He is accused of emailing a death threat to Yee because of Yee's efforts to tighten gun control laws.

Authorities found three assault weapons during a search of his house on Humboldt Avenue last week along with explosives. Officials say Basham was also building homemade bombs.
