After “an extended period,” Osceola County deputy sheriffs arrested a man barricaded inside his home near Kissimmee months after he was released from jail, accused of threatening to kill a family court judge for “treason.”
Adam Lee Andersen, 34, is back at the Osceola Jail for violating the terms of his release, which was to not contact the victim directly or indirectly, according to court records. Originally arrested for extortion on April 1 after allegedly threatening a judge in late March, Andersen was additionally charged June 16 with corruption by threat against a public official and written threats to commit a mass shooting.
His next court appearance is scheduled for July 2.
The sheriff’s office said Andersen locked himself in his Indian Point Circle home when deputies arrived to arrest him but he eventually surrendered. An agency spokesperson did not say how long it took for him to turn himself over nor did one respond to an email seeking clarification.
Court records and a review of what appears to be Andersen’s Facebook page show he’s been embroiled since 2019 in a contentious divorce in which he was denied custody of his daughter.
Since then, he has posted multiple times about wanting to publicly hang family court judges. Though most of those posts are dated prior to his April arrest, only two were cited. One of them, allegedly posted on Jan. 20, included a photo of the judge in his divorce case, whose name was redacted.
