PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- A suburban Chicago man has pleaded guilty to federal charges of obstructing justice and filing false retaliatory liens against government officials.
Justice Department officials say 42-year-old Tyree Davis Sr. could face up to 40 years in prison at his sentencing October 15.
A federal grand jury in Chicago returned an eight-count indictment last July charging Davis with obstruction of justice and filing fraudulent multi-billion dollar liens against government employees.
According to the court documents, Davis sent mail threatening two federal judges with arrest and claiming they owed $100 billion to a woman he identified as his wife.
The documents also describe Davis filing false liens against the U.S. attorney and clerk of court for the Northern District of Illinois, an assistant U.S. attorney and an Internal Revenue Service special agent.
