WESTMINSTER, Colo. (KDVR) -- Jason Cameron Stiles was sentenced on Friday, Dec. 6, to 16 years in prison for burglary and stalking a 20-year-old woman.
According to a 17th Judicial District Attorney's Office press release, on Nov. 12, 2018, the now 30-year-old Stiles attacked the woman in the bedroom of her home. The victim fought him off and Stiles got away. Police later arrested Stiles. They found him with a knife and latex gloves, and found a gun he purchased outside the victim’s home.
Investigators later learned Stiles had broken into the victim’s home at least twice in October before the November attack.
The investigation found Stiles hid in the closet on multiple occasions, watching the woman undress, brush her teeth, get ready for bed and sleep.
DA Dave Young said investigators learned Stiles and the victim were in a class together at Front Range Community College during the fall of 2017 on the Westminster campus. Stiles had likely been stalking her for a little more than a year.
Stiles pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary, stalking and crime of violence using a weapon.
