AUSTIN -- A man is charged with retaliation, accused of threatening to kill an Austin judge.
According to his arrest affidavit, 26-year-old Shawn Erik Haugen was upset because the judge had ruled he was unable to legally act on his own behalf because of a mental illness.
Haugen's attorney called the judge to warn him and said Haugen knew the judge's home address and phone number.
The judge and his family were so concerned they left their house and went to a hotel.
Haugen is in the Travis County Jail with bond set at $100,000.
