Man Found Guilty of Cyberstalking - Jailed
A 28-year-old Missoula, Montana (US) man has pleaded guilty to cyberstalking for sending threatening e-mails to his former girlfriend.
Jeffrey D. Grob pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Missoula on Thursday. He faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced on June 19. Grob remains jailed.
Prosecutors say Grob sent the threatening e-mails to his former girlfriend from October through December 2007. The e-mails included death threats and some included pictures of dead women.
An Oct. 15, 2007 e-mail said: "I hope you die!!" One on Nov. 24 read: "I'm going to slit your throat. If you ever come back to Montana again I am going to slit your throat." Another e-mail included a picture of a dismembered woman and said: "This will be you."
The woman now lives in Seattle.
