A 45-year-old transient man will serve four years in prison for harassing local female realtors.
Common Pleas Judge W. Duncan Whitney delivered the sentence Wednesday. John Daniels, whose last listed address was a hotel in Newark, pleaded guilty last May to four felony counts of telephone harassment.
Last September, Daniel called four realtors in Delaware and Licking Counties to set up a house visit. Each conversation resulted in Daniels telling the women he was going to sexually assault them.
Defense attorney O. Ross Long has said alcohol played a factor in the calls.
Daniels was previously convicted in 1994 and 1998 in Franklin County Municipal Court on similar charges.
