SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A federal judge has ordered a convicted child sex offender to provide monthly proof that his phone is unable to connect to the internet after he allegedly made an adult daycare employee feel “unsafe and violated” while out on bond for cyberstalking.
In an order signed by US Magistrate Judge Jeremy D. Peterson last month, Pretrial Services officer Renee Basurto said Michael Jameson Chand “violated the privacy” of a staff member at the Rancho Cordova Adult Health Care Center with unwanted phone calls and physical advances.
The staff member said the phone calls from Chand constituted “small talk”, but that he got her number from a social worker’s office after she declined to give it to him herself. She said Chand wet his finger with saliva, shoved it in her ear, and kissed her on the head.
When the woman told Chand not to kiss her, she said, he responded “you will get used to it.”
The 30-year-old man is no longer allowed to speak to the staff member, even through a third party, and must work with a counselor on “practicing appropriate behaviors.”
Chand, who had his room at the daycare center searched shortly before his indictment, was sentenced to two years in 2017 for extorting a 14-year-old girl for more nudes by threatening to send the ones she had already given him to her family. When the girl refused to provide more, he followed through with his threat.
As The Update originally reported, Chand began to harass the same girl, now an adult, through new phone numbers and social media accounts. He allegedly first began to contact the woman in an effort to apologize for his behavior but became hostile when she wanted nothing to do with him.
“Yeah, that’s what I fucking thought, n***a, turn your phone off like a fucking bitch coward,” he allegedly said in one of 44 voicemails left on the victim’s phone. “That’s okay, I know where your fucking family lives.”
According to agents, he also told her he was going to pay a witch to curse her son and “pay a visit” to her daughter, leading the victim to begin to suffer from PTSD, anxiety, and depression.
Chand had claimed that the victim was actually harassing him by threatening to post his sex offender status online. He would later accuse her on Facebook, without proof, of killing her ex-partner and said her new one was a rapist.
