Super Bowl Threats - Tempe Man Sentenced


Kurt William Havelock, 36, of Tempe, Ariz. was sentenced on October 27, 2008 to one year and one day in federal prison, plus three years of supervised release, by U.S. District Judge Roslyn O. Silver. Havelock was found guilty in June 2008 of six counts of Mailing Threatening Communications in connection with an investigation into his threats to injure people in the vicinity of Super Bowl XLII in February 2008.

Havelock mailed threatening letters to various media outlets including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Phoenix New Times, containing threats to kill people in the vicinity of Super Bowl XLII played in Glendale, Ariz. The threatening letters were mailed from a Post Office in Glendale but were intercepted by law enforcement prior to reaching the intended recipients.

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Tempe Police Department. The prosecution was handled by Michael T. Morrissey, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Phoenix.
