SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A Colorado man accused of stalking and harassing multiple people over a three-year period has been sentenced to 24 years in prison.
U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Viken sentenced 56-year-old Jeffrey Grimes, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, on December 2. Prosecutors say Grimes stalked and harassed several people between 2008 and March of this year via telephone and mail.
A jury convicted Grimes of the charges in August.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Grimes must also serve three years of probation after he is released.
Upon sentencing, Grimes was turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service.
