FARGO, North Dakota — An inmate at the North Dakota State Penitentiary is accused of threatening a federal judge.
Robert Lee Johnson is charged with one count of mailing threatening communications. He's scheduled to make his first court appearance later this month.
Authorities say Johnson sent a letter to U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson that threatened Erickson and his family. The letter was postmarked on June 16.
A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
