Local resident accused of stalking a woman and placing a GPS tracker on her vehicle was given a 3-year probation sentence

CASPER – His name is Jacob Karl Babcock and his was sentenced during a hearing on Wednesday morning.

A woman with whom he had been romantically involved, contacted police and said Babcock had violated a protection order.

He was in possession of numerous firearms and became violent with police when they attempted to apprehend him.

Once Babcock arrived at the jail, he again became violent. Deputies had to use physical force to control him.

But because Babcock has a limited criminal history, Johnson went along with the agreement.

As part of his probation, he is required to attend counseling and receive treatment for alcohol abuse.

He initially faced up to 10 years behind bars when charges were filed.
