A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Robert J. Grundman, 51, formerly of Weyauwega.
He is accused of threatening his ex-wife, her attorney and the judge who presided over his divorce.
On Monday, June 8, New London attorney Earl Luaders met with Officer Chase Schroeder and said he had received threatening emails from Grundman.
Luaders, who represented Grundman’s ex-wife in their divorce four years ago, said Grundman “had been unable to let it go since then,” according to the criminal complaint.
Luaders showed Schroeder an email that he apparently received from Grundman on May 20 with the subject line, “Earl the snake.” The email accused Grundman’s ex-wife of sex crimes and closed with, “Shame on your soul you snake.”
Luaders also showed the officer an email that had been forwarded to him from Grundman’s ex-wife. Apparently sent by Grundman on June 6, the email said, “If I don’t see my daughter. Many people suffer. I start with Kevin, Then Jamie. Then Matt. Then the lawyer, then the guardian, then the judge, then the pigs that facilitated your crimes, then the one who restrained me. Is it worth making many suffer for your crimes.”
When Schroeder asked the ex-wife to help those identify the people in Grundman’s email, she said one of the named men was a co-worker, another she had not seen since 2008 and she did not know who Matt was.
She identified the judge in the email as Judge Raymond Huber who granted her contested divorce from Grundman.
She said the guardian was probably the attorney who served as the guardian ad litem during the divorce and recommended that Grundman be denied joint custody of their daughter.
On April 21, Huber ordered that Grundman pay $283 per month in child support until his unemployment benefits run out. He also ordered that Grundman submit his job searches to Luaders.
The criminal complaint says Grundman sent 20 emails to his ex-wife between April 4 and June 8. He allegedly came to her house, uninvited and unwelcome on five occasions between Feb. 9 and June 6.
On June 2, Grundman filed four separate personal injury cases against his ex-wife.
“Deliver her or I come to you for punishment. Pigs will be called to your house. Another lawsuit filed,” noted a June 5 email that Grundman apparently sent to his ex-wife regarding visitation. “You will pay for your crime as I see fit.”
On June 5, his ex-wife filed for an injunction against Grundman and Huber granted her a temporary restraining order.
On June 15, Assistant District Attorney Veronica Isherwood filed felony charges against Grundman for threatening a judge and two counts of stalking.
