MASON CITY – Jeffrey Pilz, a current history instructor at NIACC, was booked into Cerro Gordo County Jail again after being sentenced for 3rd degree harassment.

Pilz had entered a voluntary negotiated guilty plea to the harassment charge on November 15th. In exchange a contempt of court charge for violating a protective no contact order was dismissed.

On Tuesday, December 6th, Magistrate Ronald J. Wagenaar sentenced Pilz to seven days in jail with credit for the 25 hours served after the original arrest and the later no contact order violation.

Magistrate Wagenaar suspended a $500 criminal fine on the condition that Pilz complete a mental health evaluation by January 30th, 2012. The no contact order was also allowed to expire immediately, and Pilz was ordered to pay $119 in court costs.

The criminal charge arose after another NIACC employee of Mason City called law enforcement after receiving threatening messages from Pilz on October 16th , subsequently Pilz was arrested.

Pilz was arrested again on November 5th a day after a warrant was issued for violation of a no contact order. Pilz had allegedly called the victim at NIACC wanting the charge dropped.

The Cerro Gordo County jail inmate population report lists Pilz as being housed in the monitored work release unit; however students report he was not present in scheduled classes on NIACC campus Wednesday.

Jeffrey Pilz is listed as the instructor for NIACC’s upcoming spring 2012 semester in five classes, U.S. History Since 1877 and American Indian History.
