Contact: Mark E. Salter
Assistant United States Attorney
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Colorado Springs man convicted of three counts of Mailing Threatening Communications, two counts of Repeated Telephone Calls, six counts of Anonymous Telephone Harassment, six counts of Repeated Harassing Communications, and two counts of Stalking was sentenced on December 2, 2011, by United States District Judge Jeffrey L. Viken. Jeffrey J. Grimes, age 56, was sentenced to 24 years’ custody, 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $1,900 in special assessments to the Victim Assistance Fund.
Grimes was indicted for the charges by a federal grand jury in March of 2011. The charges stem from multiple incidents between 2008 and 2011 in which Grimes threatened, harassed, and stalked multiple victims repeatedly through the mail and by telephone. Grimes was convicted of the charges following a jury trial in August.
This case was investigated by the Perkins County Sheriff's Office.
Grimes was immediately turned over to the custody of the United States Marshal.
