TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A Florida inmate is facing additional charges after allegedly sending handwritten letters to a Leon County attorney and a circuit judge, threatening to harm them.

According to arrest documents, an attorney with the Leon County Public Defender's Office contacted police on July 2 about a letter she received from 31-year-old Frito Jean-Jacques.

In the letter, Jean-Jacques asks the victim to file a motion for him for illegal sentencing. The letter goes on to say, "If you do not file this motion, when I get out of prison I'm going to kidnap you and your husband." Jean-Jacques also reportedly threatens to rape the victim in front of her husband.

The Tallahassee Police Department investigated a second letter written by Jean-Jacques to a current judge in the 2nd Judicial Circuit.

Jean-Jacques requests the judge to file a motion and then says, "Failure to file this motion will lead to destruction." The letter continues, reading, "This is the only way to save your life and your family's life."

Officers spoke with Jean-Jacques, who admitted to writing the letters, but said they were not threatening.

Jean-Jacques has been charged with two counts of a written threat to kill or injure and two counts of corruption by threat. He is currently being held at the Florida State Prison.
