(WDAY TV) - A 56-year old veteran has changed his plea to guilty. Michael Jacobson planned to use an insanity defense after being charged with conspiracy to deliver drugs and possession of a firearm.

The judge didn't discount his mental issues, but said it's difficult to succeed in federal court with an insanity defense.

Prison officials said by pleading guilty, Jacobson would be eligible for post traumatic stress disorder treatment.
