Jack Worel, a 71-year-old Los Alamos man, was found guilty by the Los Alamos Magistrate court of stalking a former female employee of his who used to work at his cleaning company.
An eight-person jury, which included two alternates, found him guilty of misdemeanor stalking. The charge carries a maximum 364-day jail sentence and/or $1,000 fine. He is due to appear in court for sentencing at a later date.
In court, the prosecution was able to successfully convince the jury that Worel engaged in a pattern of stalking that began in 2010 and only ended on Aug. 13, 2012, when he was caught by the victim trying to install a GPS monitoring device on her car at the former DeColores restaurant on East Road. The victim, now in her late 20s, was working at the restaurant at the time.
After a two day investigation after the incident, which included visits to his house, police arrested Worel. During the investigation police also noticed a package on his doorstep containing equipment to track and monitor cell phone calls.
According to police records, their case against Worel began back in 2010 over an incident that occurred while Worel and the victim were cleaning in the URS building at 1911 Central Avenue.
