TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson landlord has been sentenced to 1 ½ years in prison for stalking a Pima County justice of the peace last year.
Prosecutors said 39-year-old Fei Qin was credited with 20 days already served, but was ordered to pay more than $1,700 in restitution.
A jury found Qin guilty of a felony charge of stalking last month and he was sentenced Wednesday.
Prosecutors said Qin was accused of dumping garbage on the lawn of Adam Watters in February and slashing the tires of the family’s truck twice.
Qin reportedly was upset because Watters refused to evict some tenants of the landlord who had fallen behind on rent.
A Santa Cruz County judge presided over Qin’s trial and sentencing and a prosecutor was brought in from Cochise County.
