Texas Inmate Pleads to Threatening Life of Fed Judge

A Texas inmate serving life for murder and a host of other crimes can add something to his resume: threatening the life of a federal judge.

Patrick Neil Womack, 34, pleaded guilty Thursday to sending a letter to U.S. District Judge David J. Folsom of Texarkana, Tex. saying he planned to escape from prison and kill him, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Federal authorities say that Womack sent the threatening letter in 2007 from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Clement Unit in Amarillo, Tex. He was indicted on the charge in July 2008.

No sentencing date has been set. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. There is no indication that Womack ever went before Judge Folsom, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Womack’s was convicted in recent years of murdering a fellow inmate and assaulting a prison official.
