HAMILTON, Mont. - An employee of a veterans' service center in Hamilton faces charges that allege he put a note on the center door that appeared to threaten him for testifying against a co-worker who was acquitted of threatening the president.
Joshua Matthew Getz appeared in Ravalli County Justice Court on Wednesday and was charged with felony tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and two felony counts of intimidation.
Court records say Hamilton police responded to the Valley Veterans Service Center on July 7 after receiving a report about a threatening letter.
Three center workers said they believed it was written in retaliation for Getz's testimony against former center employee Dan Rachell.
Charging documents say a police officer searched the computers at the center and found evidence that Getz may have written the note.
