Ex-town man gets 82 months for stalking, threats

Suffolk District Attorney logo

A former Arlington resident was sentenced late Thursday, Aug. 8, to 82 months in federal prison for stalking and threatening to kill.

Phillip Andrew Bauer, 33, a Canadian citizen previously living in town, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. to prison to be followed by three years of supervised release. He is subject to deportation upon release from prison.

Last April, Bauer pleaded guilty to mailing threatening communications and two counts of stalking.

The Boston Globe reported that Bauer was described by prosecutors as "a dangerous bully who enjoys terrorizing innocent people."

His federal public defender could not be reached for comment.

According to an affidavit in the case, Bauer and the woman argued on Feb. 12, 2011, about their planned wedding, and he threatened to kill her if she left him and decapitate her if she contacted police, the affidavit said. He also battered the woman and demanded $50,000 cash, prosecutors said.

She flew to California the day after the attack to live with her sister, and police arrested Bauer four days after the assault, but not before he sent several threatening texts and e-mails to the woman and relatives, according to court records.
The announcement was made jointly by U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Vincent B. Lisi, special agent in charge of the FBI, Boston Field Division; Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis; and Arlington Chief Frederick Ryan.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Suzanne Sullivan Jacobus and David G. Tobin of Ortiz's Major Crimes Unit.
