MARINA, Monterey County (CBS SF) — A Marina man has pleaded guilty to six counts of violating a civil restraining order and one count of sending annoying or threatening electronic communications, Monterey County District Attorney Dean Flippo announced Wednesday.

Prosecutors said Kevin Saunders, 44, was expelled from the Monterey College of Law in September 2013 and began harassing the college’s faculty and students.

Following Saunders’ actions, the president and dean of the school sought a restraining order against him.

Prosecutors said a restraining order was issued against Saunders on Oct. 10, 2013, but the former student sent several threatening and derogatory electronic communications to various faculty members and students of the college.

The incidents occurred in October, November and December of 2013.

Prosecutors said Saunders pleaded guilty to one count for each victim he harassed. He was sentenced to three years of probation and 60 days in county jail.

He was also ordered not to contact the victims since the civil restraining order remains in effect, prosecutors said.
