A Texas woman who threatened a federal judge overseeing one of former President Donald Trump’s case in Florida has been sentenced to serve 37 months in federal prison for “using interstate communications to threat, kidnap or injure” the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas announced Friday.

Tiffani Shea Gish, aka Evelyn Salt, pleaded guilty on Nov. 9, 2023.

Gish was ordered to serve 37 months in federal prison, immediately followed by three years of supervised release.

At the hearing, the court heard additional evidence about mental health problems and that Gish had previously left threatening messages for various government agencies.

In handing down the sentence, Judge Hittner noted that he was concerned for the safety of the public and protecting the judiciary.

“Upholding the rule of law is one of the main priorities of the Department of Justice, and that means protecting public servants from violence,” said Hamdani. “Holding Tiffani Gish accountable for her threats to assassinate a federal judge sends a strong message that we have no tolerance for those – who often hide behind a far-off keyboard or phone line – seeking to undermine our democratic institutions by threatening the safety of the people who help those same institutions thrive.”

On Sept. 1, 2022, Gish left three threatening voicemails on the chamber’s telephone of a U.S. district judge from Florida. In the messages, Gish claimed to be a member of several military combat units, trained and familiar with weapons of war.

In the first message, she said the victim was marked for assassination and would get a bullet in the head.

Gish then reiterated the same threat in two subsequent messages and used expletives when adding that she had ordered snipers and a bomb to the victim’s house and would to throw a bullet to the victim’s head.

“He’s marked for assassination and so are you,” she said, according to court documents, telling Cannon to “stand the f*ck down or get shot.”

“Donald Trump has been disqualified long ago, and he’s marked for assassination. You’re helping him, ma’am,” Gish allegedly said in one of the voicemails.

Gish will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
