Ex facing year jail for stalking former girlfriend’s husband
August 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Andrew Rustad

A 37-year-old man who prosecutors say called his former girlfriend’s husband dozens of times with threats of harm and eventually went to the couple’s Half Moon Bay home to “have it out” is facing a year in jail after pleading no contest to felony stalking.

Prosecutors sought a 16-month sentence for Andrew Hopkins Rustad but a judge capped it at one year and said he’d consider less at an Oct. 2 hearing.

Rustad reportedly began a romantic relationship last summer with his alleged victim’s wife. In December, she left her husband to move in with Rustad but asked to come back on Jan. 8 because she said he was verbally abusive, according to prosecutors.

Throughout the night of Jan. 8 and into the next day, Rustad allegedly called 68 times and left 24 messages of escalating threats such as being outside the home “waiting to get him.” Sheriff’s deputies could not locate Rustad but were called to the couple’s gated community early the next morning because he was there to see the husband. Deputies arrested Rustad and reported him saying he was there “to have it out with the victim,” according to prosecutors.

Rustad is free from custody on $250,000 bail.
