Orange City, Iowa — A Hull man is behind bars after pleading guilty to criminal mischief and criminal trespassing charges.

According to Sioux County Attorney Thomas Kunstle, 37-year-old Nathan Ross Raman of Hull was sentenced this week in Sioux County District Court for the crimes of Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree, and Criminal Trespassing, a Serious Misdemeanor.

Kunstle says that according to court records, on March 29, 2017, a home surveillance system captured video of Raman vandalizing a garage in Hull. This was the second time such panels were vandalized, but the first time video captured the suspect, says the county attorney. He says Sioux County Sheriff’s Deputies responded and executed a search warrant on Raman’s home finding clothing, a bicycle, and spray paint that were consistent with the suspect, video, and damage. The homeowners were already protected under a no-contact order against Raman stemming from Raman’s 2013 conviction where he had sent numerous threatening text messages to the victims.

In plea agreement negotiations, Raman requested that the Court order no jail, while the State recommended the Court impose 90 days in jail. The Court sentenced Raman to five years in prison for felony Criminal Mischief and 365 days in jail for Criminal Trespassing. The Court suspended the prison term and placed Raman on probation for a period of three years. The Court further sentenced Raman to serve 90 days in the Sioux County Jail, and further ordered that Raman be taken into immediate custody after the hearing.
