Federal Judge Curtis Collier yesterday rejected an agreed sentence for a Chattanooga man who pleaded guilty to making vulgar, threatening calls to former U.S. Rep. Diane Black, the Chattanoogan reports. The sentencing range for Clifton Stewart Ward, 45, was 6-12 months for threatening a federal official. It was agreed between the prosecution and defense that the recommended sentence would be time served. However, Judge Collier set the term at 10 months. Ward is ordered to report to serve the final two months after 30 days.
