Conn. Man Found Guilty of Threatening Judge Who Oversaw Divorce

A Connecticut man has been found guilty of threatening to shoot a family court judge who had been overseeing his divorce case.

The Harford Courant reports Superior Court Judge David Gold on Friday convicted 50-year-old Edward "Ted" Taupier, of Cromwell, on charges of threatening, disorderly conduct and breach of peace.

Taupier went to trial last spring on charges that he threated to shoot Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Bozzuto in emails sent to several other people.

Testimony shows the email included information about Bozzuto's home, the distance to her master bedroom from a nearby cemetery and ammunition that could be used to shoot her.

Taupier faces up to six years in prison. He is scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 9.
