Victim to man: ‘You have no moral code’
A Gardnerville Ranchos man who previously admitted to stalking was placed on probation.
Lawrence W. Baty, 51, hacked a woman’s social media accounts, video-taped himself outside her home, called her more than 20 times per day and sent her threatening messages.
He was arrested Feb. 13.
Appearing in Douglas County District Court on Monday, the victim tearfully told Judge Thomas Gregory that she had her son and brother move into her home for safety reasons and that Baty continued to contact her family members while he was incarcerated. His release paralyzes her, she said.
“You are one lie after another and not to be trusted,” she told Baty. “I fear that wherever you go, you will find me … You have no moral code.”
During a previous court appearance the state said that Baty was previously convicted of violating a 2005 restraining order.
Terms of his probation include completing an anger management class, wearing a GPS monitor and not being allowed to access the internet. Baty is also not allowed to possess any devices that would allow him access to the internet, or to live in a dwelling that has access to the internet.
Baty’s underlying sentence is 60 months in prison.

Colten K. Coralles, 23, was arrested in April at MontBleu Casino for trespassing. Coralles had a knife and a used hypodermic device on him.

Coralles was transported to the Douglas County Jail from the hospital.
Coralles also was arrested in 2016 on charges of domestic battery, possession of hypodermic devices and for failing to appear in drug court.
His sentencing is set for July 17.
A South Lake Tahoe man with a long history of drug abuse will get another chance at sobriety.
With the support of his parents, Timothy A. Wilson, 37, will enter a treatment facility in Grass Valley, Calif.
“I’ve done drugs my whole life,” Wilson told Gregory. “It’s gotten out of hand lately and I’m ready … I realize I have no more chances. This is it.”
Wilson was arrested in October at the Lakeside Inn on a warrant. He had methamphetamine on him at the time. Also in 2016 Wilson provided false identification to deputies during a traffic stop and then fled on foot. In the vehicle pipes with methamphetamine and marijuana residue and identifications belonging to other people were found.
