Crime > Worel gets one year of unsupervised probation

By Tris DeRoma

Jack Worel, a man that was convicted in January to a year of electronic surveillance for stalking a former employee of his, will not be serving the rest of his sentence.
In a deal worked out with the assistant district attorney and the court, Worel will instead serve a year of unsupervised probation.
According to assistant district attorney Kent Wahlquist, the state was notified by Worel that he will be moving to Washington state soon.
“In this case, our goal is to protect the victim, and him leaving accomplishes that goal,” Wahlquist said.
In March, the magistrate court found Worel guilty of one count of misdemeanor stalking, and was sentenced to one-year of probation with electronic monitoring.
According to court records, Worel was found guilty of stalking an ex-employee of his in January of this year.
The conviction stemmed from an incident in 2012 where Worel was observed tampering with the ex-employee’s car in the parking lot of De Colores, a restaurant where she worked located on East Road.
It was later found he had installed a GPS tracking device. Police arrested him at his home two days later after they accumulated enough evidence, which including recently-purchased equipment to track and monitor cell phone calls.
