WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin Rapids man convicted of threatening two judges in Wood County is facing new charges of sending letters to the jurors who found him guilty.

Forty-nine-year-old Donald Maier is charged with ten counts of stalking. He remains behind bars on $25,000 bond. Maier threatened Wood County Judge Edward Zappen Jr. and Judge James Mason in 2005. A jury found him guilty in 2006 and he was sent to prison for two years.

Maier is expected to enter a plea to the latest charges during a court appearance Dec. 14.

    Some people are just too violent to be tried by a jury of thier peers, maybe a judge should decide these cases, or even a quiet vigilante would be even better.

    This is why I will never be on a jury, too much liability. I will come off biased in the pretrial jury selection time. Being on a jury sucks anyhow, inconvenient, basicly its a for free gig, I make more in a hlf hour at work then they get per day, and throw in the possibility of retaliation from low lifes, not worth it.
