Man Guilty of Harassing Female Real Estate Agents

By Mike Wheatley | May 31, 2011

A man has pleaded guilty to making a number of abusive and threatening phone calls to female realtors in the Central Ohio area.

John Daniels, 45, from Newark, Ohio, admitted four specimen charges of telecommunications harassment pertaining to the phone calls, which are fifth degree felony offences, in court at Delaware County last week.

Daniels, who has previous convictions for the same offense in 1994 and 1998, made the threatening calls with a pay-as-you-go cell phone which he bought in another person’s name from a Wal-Mart store, according to court transcripts.

In total, six female real estate agents reported threatening phone calls to the police.

Daniels admitted to the cops during questioning that he found the women’s numbers after going through real estate magazines and ads looking for attractive realtors.

He would then call them on the premise of viewing a property. However, in each conversation, Daniels would suddenly turn nasty, telling each of the women that when they met at the properties he would sexually assault them.

Sentencing has been put back until July 13. Daniels faces up to four years jail time, the maximum permissible for the offences.
