WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago man accused of stalking a DuPage County circuit judge has been sentenced to five years in prison.

State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin says 58-year-old John Euwema of Western Springs was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to stalking and interference with the duty of a judicial officer.

Berlin says Euwema, while a driving violation case was pending in July 2013, sent a book, a letter and U.S. currency to Judge Kathryn Creswell. Two months later, Euwema sent an email to Creswell’s husband and asked him to deliver an attached letter to the judge.

An investigation by the State’s Attorney’s Office and the Sheriff’s Department led authorities to Euwema’s place of business where ammunition, newspaper articles relating to Creswell and a photograph of a family member were found.
