Charges filed against man who allegedly threatened N.Y. AG, civil fraud case judge

WASHINGTON — New York state police filed charges against a man whom they allege sent threatening messages to Judge Arthur Engoron and New York Attorney General Letitia James, a person with direct knowledge of the matter told NBC News.

Engoron presided over former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial, in which Trump and executives at his company were hit with a more than $464 million fraud judgment. James brought the fraud case.

Tyler Vogel, 26, of Lancaster, New York, faces a felony charge for allegedly making a terroristic threat against James after finding her information online and threatening her with death or injury if she did not drop her case against Trump, the source said.
