STURTEVANT, WI (WTAQ) - The village president in Sturtevant will spend a year-and-a-half on probation for stalking his ex-girlfriend for over a year.

53-year-old Steven Jansen was sentenced Tuesday on reduced charges which eliminated the possibility of going to a state prison.

A felony stalking charge was dropped in a plea deal, and he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and making threats in a computer message.

Jansen was fined $1,000.

Prosecutors said he broke up with his girlfriend in January of 2011 but kept sending text messages and e-mails to her for months – and he left messages at her son’s grave.

Jansen told a judge he’s done a lot of soul searching since he was first charged 20 months ago, and he’s sorry for the trauma he caused to his ex-girlfriend.
