What is predicted to be a four-day jury trial for charges against a Burlingame man began on Tuesday.
Khalil Jaser, 48, was arrested for DUI on July 28, 2012. According to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office, between Aug. 28 and Sept. 3, Jaser left seven threatening voicemails on the arresting officer's phone, telling the officer that he "better not go to work." Other threats included "boom, you're dead motherf-----," and warning him to be careful on the streets.
On Sept. 5, the officer called Jaser back, ordered him to stop calling and asked him what he meant by the threats. DA's Office notes show that Jaser replied "you know what I meant."
Over the next three weeks, Jaser called the officer another 152 times and left 54 messages.
Jaser has been charged with making death threats, making harrassing phone calls and resisting arrest. He posted $100,000 bail on Nov. 29 and his trial is expected to be over by the end of the week.
