The interstate stalking charge against year-old Frederick Banks, of Pittsburgh, was unsealed this week. A federal magistrate on Tuesday ordered Banks jailed until trial. He has since transferred to the Tampa, Florida area, where the Craigslist ad was posted June 25, according to a printout of it filed with the court. The agent worked in Pittsburgh and helped investigate Banks before he was sentenced to five years in prison for a case in which he sold bogus and pirated computer software online, authorities and court records said.
Banks was later convicted in a case of trying to buy coins and other valuables online with bad checks and sentenced to an additional five years and three months in prison. He was released from prison in but was sent back for 14 more months after he violated his probation by opening foreign exchange s using stolen identities, court records show.
Banks had falsely claimed the agent held his girlfriend at gunpoint to get her to implicate him in counterfeit software, authorities said, and apparently sought retribution by posting the Craigslist ad.
