TUCSON - A Tucson man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for tampering with a victim.
44-year-old James Rayburn Johnson, on Nov. 29, 2011, according to police, used physical force or the threat of force against the victim by taking her cellular telephone away when she was attempting to call the police to report an assault or possible assault that Johnson had committed against her.
In doing so, police say, Johnson intended to hinder, delay, or prevent communication to a law enforcement officer of information relating to the commission, or the possible commission, of a federal offense against the victim.
Johnson later pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced on Nov. 30th.
The investigation in this case was conducted by the Pascua Yaqui Indian Police Department. The prosecution was conducted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Raquel Arellano, District of Arizona, Tucson.
