Assault Charge Follows Facebook Threats to Judge
HOUSTON (CN) - A 28-year-old man was arrested on charges of using Facebook to threaten a family court judge who is also his ex-wife's boss.
Ezra Osman is the ex-husband of Iris Guillen, who works as clerk for 312th Family Court Judge David Farr, according to Harris County court records.
After Osman called the court repeatedly on May 9, Guillen told Judge Farr that Osman was harassing her, records state.
"The judge picked up the extension and told the defendant that if he continued to tie up the phone lines he would be in trouble," according to the charging document signed by an assistant district attorney. "The defendant then told the (judge), 'Fuck you, mother fucker. I'm gonna' come down there and fuck you up.'"
Farr reportedly told Osman he found his statements threatening.
Guillen later showed a Harris County sheriff's deputy that Osman had made a threatening post on his Facebook page. It said: "Got my ninjas ... so heads are going to roll started with that punk ass judge," according to the assault charge.
Osman is currently jailed on a $20,000 bond.
Harris County court records show that Osman has also been charged over the past five years with assaulting a family member, criminal trespass, theft and evading arrest.
