LOGAN — A 25-year-old Hyrum man, Juan R. Gutierrez-Lopez, accused of stalking and harassing multiple women is returning to jail, less than a year since being sentenced for similar charges.
Gutierrez appeared in 1st District Court Monday, after previously pleading guilty to stalking, a class A misdemeanor.
Cache County Attorney James Swink said the defendant has been in trouble multiple times, accused of roaming the halls of school buildings and harassing people. He told the court, sometimes incarceration is the only way to protect the community.
Police report the defendant was trespassed from several locations including the Cache Valley Transit District.
Judge Kevin Allen said the case was serious enough that everyone should be concerned. He ordered Gutierrez to serve one-year in jail and warned that he will be sentenced to prison if arrested again, after getting out.
Court records show Gutierrez was sentenced to one-year in jail last June on two counts of stalking. He had reportedly been released early for good behavior, before being arrested again in December.
