• The case of Leonard M. Bradway Jr., 57, of Ridge Avenue, Warrensburg, was transferred to Warren County Court. Bradway is facing a felony charge of Making a Terroristic Threat. Police said that on May 11 at about 6:15 p.m., he called WTEN-TV news and told them to send reporters to Warren County Family Court, because the judge was "as good as dead," referring to Warren County Family Court Judge J. Timothy Breen. A station employee then called the police and reported the death threat, according to court records.
Police said Bradway was dissatisfied over the handling of a pending matter. According to a report in the Post-Star, Bradway was seeking a hearing to modify custody or visitation for a child of his because a man living with the child's mother had been charged with endangering the child's welfare - and Bradway was upset at the delay. His defense lawyer, county Assistant Public Defender Marcy Flores, said at Bradway's arraignment that he had been drinking before he called the station, didn't remember the phone call, and never intended to hurt the judge, the Post-Star reported.
An order of protection was issued in the case. Bail was set at $15,000 cash.
