Pakistani Citizen Sentenced for Interstate Stalking
HELENA – Mohammad Asif Waziri, a 47-year-old Pakistani citizen, was sentenced today to 48 months in prison followed by 3 years supervised release after pleading guilty to interstate stalking on April 4, 2018. Senior U.S. District Judge Charles C. Lovell handed down the sentence. The defendant was also ordered to pay $900.00 in restitution.
Waziri stalked four victims in Oregon between June and September 2017 by engaging in a pattern harassing phone calls and voicemails, Facebook Messenger messages, and packages. Waziri did this despite being served with a no-contact order and being warned by law enforcement not to continue his harassment of the victims.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Bartleson and investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Oregon State Police.
