Bankruptcy Court clerk charged with having gun in courthouse

(AP) A woman who worked as a clerk in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Richmond has been charged with bringing a gun into the courthouse.

Tammy Luedecke was charged June 17 with violating a law that prohibits the possession of guns or other dangerous weapons in federal facilities, including courthouses.

Luedecke is charged with bringing a Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol into the clerk’s office on Feb. 14.

Luedecke’s LinkedIn page said she has worked as a senior deputy clerk at the bankruptcy court since 1991. A woman who answered the phone in the clerk’s office June 17 said Luedecke no longer worked there. A message left for her supervisor was not immediately returned.

Luedecke’s lawyer, Abraham Del Rio III, did not return messages seeking comment.

She was scheduled to appear in court June 19.
