Man Pleads Guilty To Threatening Missoula Judge

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A Missoula man pleaded guilty to posting threats against a Missoula District Court judge on his Facebook page. Ronald Klotzer made his first court appearance in Missoula justice court today and entered his plea for a misdemeanor charge of privacy of communication.

Court documents show last week Klotzer posted threats on Facebook, saying he wanted to hurt Judge Karen Townsend and damage her home. Documents state the threats came after Townsend denied a motion Klotzer filed in a civil case. His friend saw the post, and called Missoula police, saying he was concerned about Klotzer's mental state.

Klotzer will now spend six months in jail and pay a $500 fine.
