WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) – A Wisconsin Rapids man convicted of stalking jurors who found him guilty of threatening a judge has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison.
A judge also sentenced Don Maier to two years on extended supervision and ordered him to get a psychological evaluation.
Maier admitted sending two letters to the jurors who convicted him of threatening Judge Edward Zappen Junior. In the letters, he asked for the jurors’ help in getting the governor to pardon his felony conviction. Maier denies that he was threatening the jurors.
Maier cannot have any contact with Zappen or his family. And the judge who sentenced him said Maier must first clear all letters to public officials with his probation agent before he sends them.
