Home > Press Page

Wednesday, June 23, 2010—Bond was set today at $100,000 for a Chicago woman who threatened to assassinate Circuit Court Judge Aurelia Pucinski, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced Wednesday.

Doris MooreDoris Moore, of the 1400 block of Chicago Avenue in Evanston has been charged with one felony count of threatening a public official.

The Sheriff’s Criminal Intelligence Unit contacted Moore after she sent an inappropriate letter to Judge Pucinski’s chambers on May 9th.  Court officials forwarded the letter to the sheriff’s office on June 9th.  

On June 23rd, officers went to Moore’s home to question her about the letter.  At this time, Moore began to rant in a garbled manner.  Officers asked Moore if she would consent to voluntary admission to a psychiatric hospital and she refused.  Moore then stated, in regard to Judge Pucinski, “I’ll assassinate her myself”.  At this time, officers placed Moore under arrest.  Her next court date is set for July 14th.

This is the 30th threat case against a public official that CIU officers have investigated so far this year, after investigating 50 threats last year.  All judicial threats are jointly investigated by the CCSO and U.S. Marshals, as part of the Northern Illinois Threat Assessment Task Force.
