Man Gets Probation for Online Threat

May 27, 2000

VENTURA — Alan Russell Neuman, a 34-year-old anti-government sympathizer who posted an online threat against a Ventura police officer, was sentenced Friday to three years' probation.

Neuman was found guilty on April 11 of three felony charges in one of Ventura County's first cyber-crime cases and faced a possible prison sentence.

But Superior Court Judge Ken Riley rejected prison time and ordered Neuman to comply with various probationary terms, including agreeing to stay off the Internet, attending anger management classes and obeying all laws.

The Ventura resident has repeatedly been cited by police for failing to register his car or attach a license plate to his vehicle. Officers had recommended prison time because they doubted he could comply with the terms.
