Carmichaels Man Sentenced to 3 Years for Cyberstalking
PITTSBURGH - A resident of Greene County, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 37 months’ imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release on his convictions for cyberstalking and communication of threats to injure, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today.
United States District Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan imposed the sentence yesterday on Kaleb Levicky, 23, formerly of Carmichaels, Pennsylvania.
According to information presented to the court, from Nov. 3, 2020 and continuing through Nov. 30, 2020, Levicky sent numerous messages via an Instagram account and multiple telephone numbers to Person 1, Person 1’s Friend, and Person 1’s Boyfriend. In these messages, Levicky threatened to cause serious bodily injury and death to Person 1. Subsequently, on Dec. 14, 2020, Levicky sent a text message to Person 2, threatening to “kill hundreds of innocent people” with firearms. Investigators with the Federal Bureau of investigation confirmed that Levicky previously purchased these firearms, and investigators ultimately seized these firearms from Levicky. Judge Ranjan referenced the seriousness of the offense.
Assistant United States Attorney Mark V. Gurzo prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
United States Attorney Chung commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Freeland Police Department, Pennsylvania State Police, Indiana University of Pennsylvania Police, Cumberland Township Police Department, and Arizona State University Police for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Levicky.
