GREELEY, CO. – The client of a private investigator charged with stalking after the PI placed a GPS device on his estranged wife’s vehicle has been acquitted by a jury of a charge of harassment.
Jeffrey Scott Schudel of Denver had faced a felony count of stalking stemming from the case in which he’d hired a PI to follow his estranged wife and the mother of his child. Prosecutors dropped that charge in January, and earlier this month a jury acquitted him of the lesser charge of misdemeanor harassment.
“I am so delighted,” Schudel told the Greeley Tribune. I could not have asked for more conscientious and thorough people [on a jury], and I’m truly grateful to them.”
