Cass County sheriff's deputies Thursday arrested a Fargo man for sending bogus warrants, demanding money, to jurors who convicted him in a district court trial.

Cass County sheriff's deputies Thursday arrested a Fargo man for sending bogus warrants, demanding money, to jurors who convicted him in a district court trial.

DanialRay Curtis, 40, 924 5th St. S., was arrested just after 11:30 at his home, Cass County Deputy Jim Thorson said.

He was charged with six counts of a misdemeanor under a North Dakota law that bars harassing or communicating after a verdict.

Thorson said a six-person East Central District Court jury convicted Curtis on Dec. 29 of DUI, driving under suspension and driving without insurance.

About two weeks ago, all six jurors received in the mail an official-looking but homemade warrant charging them with forgery and theft by deception.

A statement at the top of the "warrant" read, "I bill at $250 per hour (plus) expenses with a minimum of two hours defending myself for a victimless crime. The first five minutes are free and I will bill you for any time thereafter."

Curtis remained in the Cass County Jail Thursday.
