WARRENSBURG — An upstate man has been accused of threatening a family court judge because he was unhappy about a delay in a child custody or visitation case.
The Warren County Sheriff’s office says 57-year-old Leonard Bradway Jr. of Warrensburg called an Albany-area television station and said media should be in Judge J. Timothy Breen’s court on Thursday because the judge was “as good as dead.”
Investigators arrested Bradway on Wednesday night and charged him with making a terroristic threat, a felony.
The Glens Falls Post Star reports that Bradway was arraigned Thursday. His lawyer said Bradway had been drinking in the hours before the call and had no intention of hurting Breen.
Bradway was jailed on $15,000 bail.
