Maryland Man Indicted On Cyberstalking Charges And For Sending Threatening Communications Over The Internet

Jacksonville, Florida – Acting United States Attorney W. Stephen Muldrow announced today the return of an indictment charging Seyed Ali Soroushjou (36, Cockeysville, Maryland) with two counts of cyberstalking and sending threatening communications over the Internet. If convicted, he faces up to five years in federal prison on each charge.

On April 7, 2017, FBI agents arrested Soroushjou at his residence in Maryland. He made his initial appearance in Baltimore and has been detained pending his transport to Jacksonville for further court proceedings.

 

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.

 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney D. Rodney Brown.
