Buhl man pleads guilty to stalking charge
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- A Buhl man has pleaded guilty to stalking after police say he harassed three women and a man in southern Idaho.
Bob Ekrut pleaded guilty Monday as part of a plea agreement that calls for prosecutors to drop three counts of intimidating a witness.
Police say Ekrut harassed the four people over two years by repeatedly calling them, leaving voice messages, sending text messages, sending cards, leaving notes on vehicles and driving by their homes.
The 51-year-old Ekrut entered an Alford plea, meaning his does not admit to all the charges.
Ekrut's attorney, Robin Ambrose, says the plea deal calls for five years of probation and Ekrut has agreed to restrictions on his movement around Buhl.
Sentencing has been set for May 6.
