SCI Forest Inmate Accused of Threatening to ‘Put a Sniper Round’ Through a Woman’s Skull
According to court documents, Marienville-based State Police filed criminal charges against 24-year-old Alberto Acevedo, currently lodged at SCI Forest in Marienville.
The investigation began after Trooper Nicewonger, of PSP Marienville, was contacted on January 28, 2019, by SCI Forest Captain Carter in regards to inmate Alberto Acevedo.
According to a criminal complaint, it was learned that inmate Acevedo allegedly authored a letter which stated that upon his release from prison, he was going to kill someone.
In the letter, Acevedo states:
“Tell them to contact Bristol Township Police Department and tell them to have (a known woman) put a protection order out on me because if not the second I leave her, I’m going to put a nice, fat, sniper round in threw her skull and them ima light her car on fire and watch it blow up.”
“So, contact who you gotta contact and let the police know to have (a known woman) get a protection from me because she will get hurt if she don’t.”
The complaint states that on February 16, Trooper Nicewonger spoke to the victim, and she advised him that she dated Mr. Acevedo for about 3 1/2 years. Her last contact with him was in late 2015 or early 2016.
She informed Officer Nicewonger that she takes threats from Acevedo very seriously. She is scared of him and thinks she could be in danger upon his release from prison.
According to the complaint, around 11:17 a.m. on February 20, Trooper Nicewonger spoke to Acevedo at SCI Forest. He was advised of his Mirando Warning, and he agreed to speak to Trooper Nicewonger.
Acevedo acknowledged that he wrote the letter.
He advised that he was upset when he wrote it. He recently learned that (the known woman) was dating someone else. Acevedo and his cellmate were talking about ex-girlfriends, and he became angry which resulted in him writing the letter.
Trooper Nicewonger asked Acevedo if he intended to follow through with the threats that he made in the letter.
The complaint states that Acevedo hesitated before he answered.
He said that “he wouldn’t kill her” but that he would “send someone to beat her up,” according to the complaint.
He indicated that he is upset with her because she disclosed his location when he was wanted for arson.
Trooper Nicewonger asked Acevedo if (the known woman) was in danger if he were to get out of prison.
He again hesitated and eventually stated that “he loved her,” and “he probably wouldn’t kill her but would send someone over to beat her up,” according to the complaint.
Based on the investigation, Acevedo has been charged with the following offense:
– Terroristic Threats W/Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on April 30 with Judge Daniel L. Miller presiding.
