COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A Cookeville man, who was already behind bars, is in more hot water after Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials said he threatened a judge and two attorneys from jail.
Tyler Dakota Matthews, 25, was already in jail on unrelated charges when the TBI alleges that he wrote letters to a Sevier County judge and an assistant public defender threatening to harm them. They claim that one of the threats was aimed at an assistant district attorney.
A Grand Jury indicted Matthews with three counts of extortion and three counts of harassment.
He remains in custody on a $50K bond.
