A woman that threatened to shoot and kill a family court judge has been indicted by a Jefferson
County grand jury. 32-year old Andrea Ramos, of Port Arthur, is accused of calling the office
of State Representative Joe Deshotel asking for help after her children were removed from her
home by CPS. When she was told there was nothing the state representative’s office could do
for her, she said she was going to the courthouse to shoot Judge Larry Thorne. Ramos also
said she would shoot any CPS representative that came onto her property.
