Arizona Man Sentenced To 8+ Years For Stalking Connecticut Woman

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) _ A Tucson man has been sentenced to more than eight years in federal prison for interstate stalking.

Prosecutors say 47-year-old Moses Antonio Shepard was sentenced Monday to a 100-month prison term.

Shepard was convicted in January by a U.S. District Court jury in Tucson.

Authorities say Shepard pursued a woman for more than 18 years after meeting her at a New York City running club in 1992.

The victim repeatedly told Shepard she wasn’t interested in him and asked him to leave her alone.

Authorities say Shepard continuously contacted the woman by phone, mail and email and tracked her down as she moved across the country.

They say Shepard traveled to the woman’s Connecticut home, school and workplace and sent her some threatening emails in 2009 to 2010.
