Man gets year for stalking women who cut him off in traffic

BLACKSBURG (AP) A Blacksburg man has been sentenced to a year in prison for stalking several women, including some who had cut him off in traffic.

Prosecutors say Joey Landon Ritenour, 49, said he felt disrespected by the women, The Roanoke Times reported.

Besides stalking his victims, Ritenour was stealing their underwear and leaving semen on their cars and inside one woman’s home. The sentence handed down Feb. 7 was part of a plea deal suspending five years for breaking and entering and one year for each stalking charge.

Prosecutors say the former Virginia Tech safety inspector admitted to the crimes, which were connected by DNA analysis. Ritenour also was ordered to undergo psycho-sexual evaluation and avoid contact with nine women. Tech spokesman Mark Owczarski says Ritenour no longer works for the school and has been banned from campus.
