OLYMPIA — An Olympia man already jailed on a drug count is accused of threatening a Pierce County Superior Court commissioner after she set his bail at $150,000.
The Olympian reported that prosecutors charged the 31-year-old man with intimidating a judge and felony harassment. He pleaded not guilty to those charges Tuesday, with bail set at $500,000.
The man appeared before Commissioner Meagan Foley on Sept. 3 after being charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.
An investigation was started the next day after a jail transportation employee reported that the man made threats against a female judge. Prosecutors say the threats included blowing up Foley’s truck, blowing “her face off” and sending her a teddy bear to prove the man knows where she lives.
