OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 48-year-old Bellevue man has been sentenced for cyberstalking in a case involving threats against the wife of a candidate for the Nebraska Legislature.

Dennis Sryniawski was sentenced Thursday to a year and a day in federal prison.

He was convicted in June of cyberstalking.

FBI investigators determined that Sryniawski sent threatening and sexually explicit emails to Jeff Parris, of La Vista, who was running for the Nebraska Legislature in October 2018.

He threatened to release personal information and a nude photo of Parris' wife if he didn't drop out of the race. Parris' wife was married to Sryniawski for two years about 25 years ago.
