Rhodes, 26, was indicted in November for intimidating a participant in the legal process and terroristic threatening. The charges stem from his Sept. 23, 2016 court appearance in which he threatened Judge Amber Wolf. Rhodes, while restrained in a four-point chair and wearing a mask to prevent him from spitting on anyone, said he could find out where Wolf lived and that he would kill her and her family. An arrest report from the incident said Rhodes made the statements several times while he was in the courtroom.
