Threatener To Be Sentenced

He threatened a judge on an Internet message board and now a man learns how long he'll serve for that crime.

Last month, 36-year old Steve Tompkins of Rockcastle County pleaded guilty to a charge of retaliating against a participant in a legal process.

Tompkins posted a discussion called "Let's Assassinate Jeffrey Burdette" on Topix.com.

Burdette serves as circuit judge in the area. Tompkins could receive up to two years in prison.
