Man Charged With Stalking Estranged Wife
An Augusta man is sitting in jail today for allegedly stalking his estranged wife.
John Steven Rangel, 47, of Goshen Lake Drive, is charged with aggravated stalking and is being held with no bond.
According to the victim, Mr. Rangel tried to call her seven times on her cell phone despite an order by Judge Hamrick not to have any contact with her "directly, indirectly, by email or any other" form of communication, according to a sheriff's report. The woman said she was afraid for her safety because of the stalking.
