Siegfried charged with making threats as verdict read

A man just found guilty of a number of charges involving two separate domestic violence incidents wasted no time in accruing new problems.

Jacob Siegfried was found guilty July 2 of depriving a custodial parent of a child, stalking, spousal abuse, one count of making criminal threats, disobeying a court order and disobeying a domestic restraining order, and resisting arrest in two separate incidents involving the mother of his child.

Sentencing in that verdict was set for Aug. 26.

But he reportedly threatened the victim as the verdict was being read, leading Nevada County Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Ow to file a complaint against him on July 5 of making criminal threats and dissuading a witness.

Siegfried was set to be arraigned on those charges Friday afternoon.

He was initially arrested in early September 2011 after he refused to return the 3-year-old boy to the custodial mother after taking him to Burning Man, and then threatening to take him to San Diego or Arizona.

In November of that same year, Siegfried allegedly grabbed his ex-girlfriend by the hair and tried to pull her into his vehicle during a child custody exchange.

Siegfried also faces criminal charges in connection with the November 2011 discovery of a trailer containing 50 pounds of marijuana.
