A former Arlington resident was sentenced late Thursday to 82 months in federal prison for stalking and threatening to kill his former fiancé.
Phillip Andrew Bauer, 33, who is Canadian and lived on Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington, pleaded guilty in April to the stalking and mailing threatening communications and he is subject to deportation once he is released from prison, said U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s office Friday.
The stalking and threats followed a domestic altercation Bauer had with his fiancé in Arlington in 2011 in which he threatened to cut off her head and send it to her father, according to court records.
When his fiancé left him, he began sending her harassing messages and tried to extort money from her and her family and in some cases threatened to kill his former fiancé and two of her siblings and demanded $50,000, according to court records. Some of the letters were sent after Arlington Police arrested Bauer in 2011 and he was still incarcerated the Plymouth County Correctional Facility, according to court records.
As part of his sentencing by U.S. District Judge George A. O'Toole, Jr. Thursday, Bauer is also subject to three years of supervised release once he gets out of prison.
