LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A 30-year-old Lufkin man was charged with retaliation Tuesday in connection to allegations that he threatened a district judge and a Lufkin Police Department detective after he was sentenced to 10 years in prison in a probation revocation hearing.

Courtney Daniel Warren is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a second-degree felony obstruction or retaliation charge, eight state-jail felony motion to adjudicate guilt for theft between $1,500 and $20,000/two or more previous convictions charges, and a drug court order for surrender. No bail amounts have been set for his charge.

According to a press release, Warren received the 10-year sentence in a bond revocation hearing in Judge Paul White’s 159th Judicial District Court. After Warren heard the sentence, he allegedly started yelling, cursing, and pushing furniture around the court room.

“As bailiffs fought to retrain him, Warren forced his way closer to the judge’s bench, looked at Lufkin Police Det. Cpl. Kevin Jackson and said, “I’m going to kill you [expletive]. I’m going to get you,” the press release stated.

Jackson was a witness for the state during Warren’s hearing because of his service as the Drug Court Liaison.

Warren then continued attempting to force his way closer to an assistant district attorney and other law enforcement officials,” the press release stated.

“Warren later told Angelina County jailers that when he got out, he was going to shoot State District Judge Paul White in the stomach.”
Additional charges are pending, the press release stated.

Warren has been arrested 27 times in Angelina County, according to the Angelina County Jail website. His arrests date back to July of 2005, and his charges include burglary of a building, criminal mischief, evading arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft of service between $1,500 and $20,000, theft of property between $1,500 and $20,000, public intoxication, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and burglary of a vehicle.
