"A 29-year-old man had just left court Wednesday after having been convicted by a jury of minor theft when he saw a woman juror in the vehicle behind him in traffic and started yelling at her, Anchorage police say. Now Jeremiah John Paskewitz faces much bigger trouble. He was charged Thursday with threatening a juror with intent to retaliate against her, a felony that could get up to five years in jail plus fines [ . . . ]
Paskewitz had been convicted in the theft of a GPS unit reported to be worth $228, and of $100 cash. The theft charges were misdemeanors.
The juror, whose name is being withheld by the [Anchorage] Daily News at the request of prosecutors, told police that after the theft trial ended, she unknowingly pulled out of the Hotel Captain Cook parking garage into traffic at Fifth Avenue and L Street behind Paskewitz's Lincoln.
He noticed her, leaned out his window and yelled threats at her over and over, according to a written police statement. Charging documents say she told police that he yelled, 'You're going to get what's f-----g coming to you, ...You made the wrong decision, b---h.'
