New Mexico man sentenced to 21 months in prison for cyberstalking Poplar woman
GREAT FALLS — A New Mexico man who admitted to cyberstalking a Poplar woman for more than two years was sentenced today to 21 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Jesse Laslovich said.
Jicarilla Juan Tiznado, 23, of Dulce, New Mexico, pleaded guilty in June to cyberstalking.
Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided.
The government alleged in court documents that from about June 2020 through October 2022, Tiznado repeatedly harassed and intimidated the victim, identified as Jane Doe, using his computer, cell phone, email and the Internet. Tiznado called, emailed and messaged Jane Doe hundreds of times, threatening to harm and kill her, kill her brother, harm her friends and relatives, send nude images of her to her teachers or post them to her school’s Facebook account. Tiznado also harassed Jane Doe by calling and emailing schools she attended, attempting to get her into trouble, submitting unsubstantiated complaints about her and her family to state and tribal agencies and calling 911 with a false report about her.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Wendy A. Johnson and Amanda L. Myers prosecuted the case. The FBI and Fort Peck Law Enforcement conducted the investigation.
