Charges were filed Thursday, Jan. 25, against Justin Lee Sullenger, 33, Union, for allegedly making threatening remarks toward a judge while in custody of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the complaint from Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Bob Parks, Sullenger is charged with a Class D felony of tampering with a judicial officer.
The report states Sullenger made the threatening statement while in custody on Jan. 22.
The arresting deputy reported Sullenger said karma would come back on a judge and he would be seeing him after his 72-hour incarceration was over. Tempers would flair and he’d take care of it.
The deputy questioned if the threats were toward him and Sullenger allegedly said they were specifically meant for a judge.
Sullenger also allegedly said the judge won’t be there much longer. Bond for Sullenger was set at $10,000 and a court date has not been set.
