After a little more than an hour of deliberating Friday, a 12-person jury found a man guilty of threatening a Bozeman judge.

The verdict came on the fourth day of the trial for 45-year-old James King, who they found guilty of felony threats directed toward Bozeman Municipal Court Judge Karl Seel, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports.

The Chronicle reports that King delivered a letter to the judge at his home, and prosecutors said during trial that in conversations with an FBI informant, King threatened to shoot Seel and use a stun gun on him.
