SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A woman has been charged with threatening a federal prosecutor in a case involving a group of purported white supremacists.

She faces one count of mailing a threatening communication and a second count of conspiracy to impede an officer.

Late last month, a brawl erupted in federal court after a judge cut off visits and phone calls for 12 alleged white-supremacist gang members.

The judge made that decision after prosecutors were allegedly threatened in their cases.

The defendants, all purported members of the Soldiers of the Aryan Culture, are indicted on federal racketeering charges and accused of carrying out various violent crimes for the organization.

According to court documents, the woman charged with threatening a prosecutor sent a letter in March warning that the attorney would be harmed for keeping the men in jail.
