Threats To Judge Lead To Revoked Probation

The Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals held that a trial judge had properly revoked the probation of a defendant who pled guilty to child abuse. The probationer had been arrested for felony retaliation against a different judge who was considering her vistation rights with her children. She told  her anger management and parenting skills teacher that she would take away the judge's children if the judge took her children. She also told the teacher that she had followed the judge home several times, knew the judge had a son and daughter, and had access to explosives. The guardian ad litem for the children testified that the probationer had previously threatened to burn down her house.
