Not Guilty of Rape But Still Going to Prison
A man has been acquitted of rape but has been sentenced for posting online threats against a Bozeman police officer who investigated the case and the deputy Gallatin County attorney who prosecuted him.The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports 35-year-old Jared Kuntz was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years with the Department of Corrections with five suspended.
The District Judge ordered the man to undergo screening for mental health and chemical dependency treatment.
This is what he posted that got him in trouble. He said he was wrongly prosecuted in 2014 and was upset about the money he owed his parents for his attorney fees. The post on Facebook said he had been drinking and doing drugs and he would beat the officer and attorney to death with a baseball bat. He also asked them to each deposit $500,000 in his bank account.
