New York man faces charges for threatening officials in Trump case

  • Staff Report 

Tyler Vogel, a 26-year-old from Lancaster, New York, has been charged with making death threats against New York Attorney General Letitia James and Judge Arthur Engoron, involved in former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case. The threats, sent via text last month, demanded the cessation of actions against Trump, leveraging personal information obtained through an online service.


Charged with two counts of making a terroristic threat and two counts of aggravated harassment, Vogel’s actions led to the issuance of a temporary protection order. Facing up to seven years in prison if convicted, details about his legal representation remain unclear, with a court return scheduled for April 9.

The backdrop to these threats is Trump’s ongoing appeal against a $454 million debt ruling in a case that scrutinizes his financial statement accuracy. The former president recently posted a $175 million bond, pausing asset seizure as he contests the verdict. Officials have yet to comment on the threats.
