PHOENIX — An Arizona man received a more than 25-month sentence for threatening to murder a federal employee.

Jeffery Daniel Gladney, 55, from Willcox pleaded guilty to the charge on June 29. United States District Judge John C. Hinderaker handed down Gladney’s sentence to time served on Monday.

According to a press release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona, Gladney left several messages on the voicemail of his attorney’s office in the summer of 2020, threatening the United States Social Security administration law judge assigned to his case.

In the voicemails, Gladney allegedly threatened to assault and kill the judge, demanding his benefits be approved immediately and instructing the legal assistant to relay the messages to the judge.
