Woman Arrested for Threatening Judge

Home > Press Page

Thursday, March 12, 2009 — A Chicago woman is being held in the Cook County Jail on charges of threatening to kill a judge, according to Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart.

            Sheila Scott, 44, of Chicago, was arrested March 10 after making a threat while authorities investigated a criminal case involving a child. During that investigation, Scott told a State's Attorney's investigator she would kill Judge Carol Kelly the next time her daughter appeared in court.  Warned about a possible felony charge, she again made threatening comments.

            Scott was arrested when she came to her daughter's next hearing at the Juvenile Court, which was March 10.

In the last two months, the Cook County Sheriff's Department has arrested two people for threatening a judge, while the department is investigating 13 other threats made in that time.
