Illinois Man Sentenced for Making Anti-Semitic Threats to Arizona Victim

On Tuesday, Kevin Thomas Kerr, 51, of Waukegan, Illinois, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Douglas L. Rayes to five years of probation.

On March 6, 2020, as part of an ongoing series of harassing communications, which included anti-Semitic slurs, Kerr called the victim in Arizona and left a voicemail threatening to injure and kill him. Federal investigators arrested Kerr in Illinois, and he was transported to Arizona to face charges.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation in this case. William G. Voit, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Phoenix, handled the prosecution.
