SACRAMENTO, CA - A Sacramento man already convicted once for stalking is looking at another prison term for a second stalking conviction involving the same victims.
James O'Rourke, 68, received a sentence of seven years behind bars after a Sacramento Superior Court jury found him guilty of felony stalking and misdemeanor willful disobedience of a court order.
According to the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office, in 2009, the defendant moved back to the same house on 40th Street where he had previously stalked his neighbors across the street and proceeded to harass them again.
D.A. spokeswoman Shelly Orio said O'Rourke was accused of staking out the victims' home, staring at them, standing at the curb near their house in an intimidating manner, verbally abusing them and taking more than 1,200 photos of them and their visitors, including their vehicles and license plates.
The victims had a restraining order against O'Rourke.
