Siegfried found guilty of seven counts in domestic violence trial

A jury reconvened after one juror was removed didn’t take long to come back with a verdict Tuesday.

Jacob Siegfried was found guilty 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.

The jury did not find him guilty on two additional counts of making criminal threats.

Siegfried 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.

Sentencing was set for Aug. 26.

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