A Colorado man has been arrested after sending threatening messages about his ex-wife and the judge handling their Boone County custody case. Jeremy Jordan, 49, of Rocky Ford, Colorado, also lost his attorney after the incident. The lawyer has withdrawn from representing Jordan and the judge has withdrawn from the case.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Jordan emailed his ex-wife 29 messages on March 30 and March 31 after allegedly becoming inappropriate during a judge-approved phone visit with his children. The ex-wife says she argued with Jordan and hung up on him. When she woke up the next morning, she had received several emails.
One of the messages read, “I’m going to (expletively) put you down.” Another said he would “kill the judge and the ex-wife.” He also wrote, “Please please please please tell the judge… anyone.”
The victim told deputies Jordan had multiple guns.
The affidavit notes that Jordan has a violent criminal history.
Jordan faces felony counts of first-degree threats to a law enforcement officer and terrorist threat and is charged as a common criminal. His bail is set at $75,000.
