Brooklyn man charged with sending death threats to former state prosecutor


A Brooklyn man accused of sending chilling texts to a Missouri prosecutor who helped put him behind bars is now being charged with threatening to kill her, authorities said Friday.

Scott Allan Smith, 38, appeared in Brooklyn Federal Court Friday after sending the woman a series of terrifying death threats last month, prosecutors said.

“You remember me, don’t you?” Smith said to the woman during a terrifying phone call on Aug. 6, the complaint said.

“I just want to tell you, you are about to die ... that little girl in the background is going to watch you die," he added, referring to the prosecutor’s daughter.

The vengeful creep was first busted in Fulton, Mo., on Nov. 26, 2014, for assault and felonious restraint in a domestic violence case. He pleaded guilty in 2015 and was sentenced to seven years behind bars, including time served.

Smith was released on parole earlier this year. He contacted the prosecutor, who is now a judge, about five months later, the complaint said.

The woman, whose name was not publicly released as part of the new case against Smith, first got a phone call from a Missouri area code.

The judge hung up, but Smith followed with a string of threatening text messages later that day from the same number, according to the complaint.

“Did you really think you were going to smirk at me in the courtroom for keeping me locked up for a crime I didn’t commit and get away with it?” he texted. "Five years I’ve been waiting for what’s about to happen. I’ve fantasized about it every single night for years.”

“My life for your life. I swear it to God," he also wrote, claiming he’d become a “martyr for this.”

Smith faces up to five years behind bars if convicted on the latest charges.
