Burlingame man who threatened officer sentenced to 16-month term
June 15, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Khalil Jaser

A Burlingame man who left numerous threatening voicemails for a Brisbane police officer following his arrest on misdemeanor drunk driving charges last year was sentenced to more than a year in prison on Thursday, San Mateo County prosecutors said.

Khalil Jaser, 49, was sentenced Thursday to 16 months in state prison, with 292 days credit for time served, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Jaser was also ordered to pay a total of $420 in restitution and court fines.

Defense attorneys had asked for probation and Jaser apologized to the court for his actions, saying he had overreacted. His ex-wife also testified that he was a good father to their two children and contributed $100 a week toward bills, prosecutors said.

Jaser was convicted in March of charges including making threats, hindering an executive officer and making harassing and threatening phone calls.

He was first arrested on July 28, 2012, on suspicion of misdemeanor drunk driving.

Between Aug. 29 and Sept. 3, the arresting officer received seven voicemails from Jaser that included warnings telling him not to go to work and to be careful on the streets. The calls included statements like “Boom, you’re dead,” Wagstaffe said.

The arresting officer spoke with him on Sept. 5 and told him to stop calling, but instead Jaser called 152 times over the next three weeks and left 54 messages, prosecutors said.

In addition, he made threats and other statements about the officer on a Twitter account that also included a large number of anti-Semitic statements.
