Saundra Marcoot


A woman who allegedly threatened Erath County District Court Judge Jason Cashon spent Monday morning in court, asking for her attorney to be removed so she can represent herself.


Saundra Marcoot was arrested in November 2023 after allegedly leaving an angry message on the district court’s phone system.

According to the arrest affidavit, Marcoot was upset over a custody dispute Cashon presided over.


In the message, she stated that she had tried to be “calm, cool and collected,” and that the situation isn’t a “game.”


She went on to say, “watch me come through the back door because enough is enough.”

Following the incident, Stephenville police placed a close patrol on the courthouse annex.


The affidavit also states that in January 2023 Marcoot was served with two criminal trespass warnings after allegedly threatening to blow up a building on Graham Street in Stephenville and threatening bodily harm to one of its employees.


In October 2023, she also allegedly called the Stephenville Police Department and threatened to go to the home of Chief Dan Harris unless she was allowed to speak with him.


Marcoot is charged the third-degree felony offense of obstruction or retaliation of a public official.


Her trial was expected to begin Monday, but has been rescheduled for Aug. 5 with Judge Donald Jones presiding.


If convicted, Marcoot faces two to 10 years in prison.
