Former Navy man who pleaded guilty to cyber-stalking to be sentenced

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO - A former Navy man who made hundreds of calls to a woman's telephone and tracked her through GPS technology after she made clear their relationship was over is scheduled to be sentenced in San Diego Monday.

Michael Lutz, 30, pleaded guilty to a cyberstalking charge on June 8 and faces up to five years in prison.

According to court documents, Lutz once chased the victim throughout a shopping mall, followed her into a women's bathroom and climbed under a locked stall to confront her.

He made hundreds of calls to the victim, tracked her through Global Positioning Technology on her phone, and illegally downloaded a program onto her computer that allowed him to spy on her Internet use, according to prosecutors.

Lutz also created a Facebook profile in the name and image of another person so he could continue interacting with the unsuspecting victim, who had obtained a restraining order against him, prosecutors said.

Lutz was in the Navy, stationed in San Diego, at the time of the cyberstalking but has since left the military.
