Mansfield man charged with stalking

A Mansfield man was charged with stalking, said U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman.

Gary L. Fisher, 44, used the mail in August 2017, in an attempt to cause emotional distress to the victim, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant's role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Michael A. Sullivan and Danielle Angeli following an investigation by the United States Marshal’s Service, the Mansfield office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Mansfield Police Department.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
