A Burlingame man who left numerous threatening voicemails for a Brisbane police officer following his arrest on misdemeanor drunk driving charges last July was convicted by a jury of numerous charges on Thursday, according to San Mateo County prosecutors. Khalil Jaser, 49, was convicted of charges including making threats, hindering an executive officer and making harassing and threatening phone calls, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said today.

Bail was raised from $300,000 to $750,000 and the case was continued to May 14 for sentencing. Jaser was first arrested on July 28, 2012, on a misdemeanor drunk driving charge, according to Wagstaffe. Between Aug. 29 and Sept. 3, the arresting officer received seven voicemails from Jaser that included warnings telling him not to go to work and to be careful on the streets and statements like “Boom, you’re dead,” Wagstaffe said.

The arresting officer spoke with him on Sept. 5 and told him to stop calling, but instead Jaser called 152 times over the next three weeks and left 54 messages, prosecutors said. In addition, he made threats and other statements about the officer on a Twitter account that also included a large number of anti-Semitic statements.

  • I know Khalil Jaser and he is not a fugitive, not a killer, nor is he a criminal. He is a driver and having his license taken away meant the end of his career to support himself and his children. He is a good family man, a great father, and would never kill anyone. Yes, he was upset and it got out of control, getting the media involved where it ended up into something more serious for exposure as to threaten a police officer. I truly believe he needs medical attention and health evaluation. He is diabetic and is not taking his other medications. He is the father of my children who miss their dad tremendously. They visit him every weekend and we would like to see him get on probation and get the medical attention he needs. We all understand what he did was wrong but he didn’t kill or murder anyone nor was he ever going to do so. He was angry and said things I know he now regrets. What should happen is he should be seen by a medical doctor to check on his health. He had an emotional breakdown that probably occurred due to hiis lack of insulin and medications that he should be taking on a regular basis. He definitely should be on probation, go to anger management, and do community service. But prison time is harsh since he did not act upon the threat nor would he ever do such a thing. He is a christian man that goes to church and believes in God. We are all praying for him and his health. The media has made him out to be a fugitive, a criminal, and a killer. He would never even kill a fly. He was a like a dog barking but would never bite. Trust me he has a family that loves him very much. He son and daughter is his world. Please give him a chance to get the proper help he needs. I am sure he has learned a hard lesson that he will never forget or ever think of harming anybody. We all deserve a second chance in this lifetime. He needs to work, raise and support his children that he loves very much. We will continue to support him and wish him the best of health and recovery. We would like to apologise in behalf of myself and his two children to the officer who did not deserve such harsh words he used in harrassing the police officer. The media wrote things that got out of hand and Khalil Jaser added more nonsense to the fire that got out of control. Please accept our sincere apologies to the arresting officer and to his family on Mr. Jaser’s behalf. We hope all this gets resolved where he doesn’t go to prison for a crime he never acted upon. Please help him get rehabilitation for his medical condition he is now suffering. In this past year, he got really sick, lost a lot of weight, and is aging with time in jail without proper medical care or nutrients he needs to sustain his illness and control his insulin due to being diabetic. Please stop tweeting and end all the nonsense that is being written by the reporters. He is human and we all make mistakes we regret and have to live with the pain and suffering. God bless you all!
