Va. man charged with threatening judges, magistrate

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — State police have arrested a New Kent County man and charged him with threatening county judges and a magistrate.

Officers arrested 50-year-old Vincent Rera Thursday morning in Williamsburg.

State police said in a release that Rera’s arrest follows a complaint from the Supreme Court of Virginia’s Department of Judicial Services. The complaint alleges that Rera stalked and threatened to kill or injure judges and a magistrate in New Kent County in December and January. No other details were given.

Rera is charged with two felony counts of making threats of death or bodily injury to a person and one misdemeanor stalking charge. He’s being held without bond in a James City County jail pending an arraignment next week, according to the release.

It was unclear whether Rera had an attorney.
