Waukesha man allegedly sent threatening letter to county judge

Aug. 6, 2014

A 51-year-old Waukesha man reportedly wrote and signed an incriminating letter to a county judge and a Milwaukee attorney.

John Bell, S16 W22097 Arcadian Avenue, was charged on Wednesday, July 30, in Waukesha County Circuit Court with threatening to harm a judge.

According to the criminal complaint, Bell was upset about a divorce hearing Judge Ralph Ramirez had heard and adjudicated.

"I will not stop pursuing you till I utterly destroy you, you lawless, unjust, perverted, God-hating, pathetic (expletive)," Bell wrote, according to the complaint.

A second, similar letter was sent to an attorney who was involved in the same case.

Bell's signature was allegedly identified on both letters.

Court records indicate that a $25,000 arrest warrant has been issued for Bell.
