Charge: Woman threatened Pierce County judge

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A 46-year-old Fircrest woman has been arrested and charged with harassing a Pierce County judge with threatening voicemails.

The woman, Suzanne Carey, pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of intimidating a judge, telephone harassment and felony harassment. Superior Court Commissioner Meagan Foley ordered Carey jailed in lieu of $100,000.

Prosecutors say Carey was upset at Superior Court Judge Katherine Stolz for authorizing a search of her home earlier this year. Carey began calling the judge to complain in October. Eventually, prosecutors say Carey called on Dec. 18 and left a voicemail that said the judge was lucky to be alive and that "some people in Tacoma, they would wait for you outside the courthouse and shoot a gun into your head."

The Tacoma News Tribune reports ( detectives arrested Carey on Friday.
