A man who was involved in making threats to St. Croix County Judge Eric J. Lundell in a letter from prison will serve extra time.
Timothy Walter Anderson, 33, a current inmate at Waupun Correctional Institution, was sentenced to three years in prison and three years extended supervision Sept. 24 on one felony count of battery or threat to a judge, party to a crime. He was also fined $1,447.
The criminal complaint said that on Nov. 17, 2006, Anderson enlisted fellow inmate Jesse Williams to write a threatening letter to Judge Lundell. Anderson told Williams he would be paid $1,000 for each letter he wrote.
A letter postmarked Nov. 8 had Williams' return address at the prison and his inmate number. In it, he threatened to kill the judge and his family. Williams also sent another threatening letter to the judge from prison.
The letters were written in black crayon on wide-lined note paper. Reserve Judge Thomas H. Barland presided over the case.
