A man who repeatedly stalked his estranged wife despite a court order barring him from doing so was slapped with a maximum sentence of two years in prison.
In a written order on Tuesday, Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho directed Augustine B. Pangelinan to serve his sentence without the possibility of parole. Pangelinan, 38, was given credit for time served.
Pangelinan pleaded guilty to two counts of violating a Superior Court order of protection issued in a Family Court matter.
According to the basis of the plea agreement that Pangelinan signed with the government, he attempted to contact his estranged wife three times on Aug. 12, 2013, via telephone and in person, in violation of the court’s order of protection.
On Aug. 13, 2013, Pangelinan attempted to contact the victim by appearing at her place of work. Two days later, Pangelinan tried to contact her again by appearing at her place of work twice.
On Aug. 16, 2013, Pangelinan tried to call the victim at her place of work and then later appeared there in person.
Two days later, he contacted the victim in person at I Love Saipan and at San Jose Church. The same thing happened on Nov. 5, 2013, when Pangelinan contacted the victim in person at Ever Clean Laundrymat in Kannat Tabla.
The following day, he called the victim at her place of employment and threatened to kill himself in front of her parent’s house. That same day, he attempted to contact her by showing up at her home in Chalan Kiya three times and asking to speak with her.
On Jan. 8, 2014, Pangelinan repeatedly attempted to call the victim at her office, disturbing her and her co-workers.
