|U.S. Attorney’s Office August 09, 2013|
BOSTON—A former Arlington resident was sentenced late yesterday to 82 months in federal prison for stalking and threatening to kill.
Phillip Andrew Bauer, 33, a Canadian citizen previously residing in Arlington, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge George A. O’Toole, Jr., to 82 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release. He is subject to deportation upon release from prison. In April 2013, Bauer pleaded guilty to mailing threatening communications and two counts of stalking.
Following a domestic altercation in February 2011, Bauer began to send threatening, harassing and extortionate communications in various forms to the victim and members of her family. In some communications, he threatened to kill the victim and/or two of her siblings and demanded $50,000 cash. Bauer sent some of the letters while he was incarcerated and while a restraining order was in effect.
United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Vincent B. Lisi, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis; and Arlington Chief of Police Frederick Ryan made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Suzanne Sullivan Jacobus and David G. Tobin of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
