NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A Metairie man will soon be spending nine months in a federal prison for throwing a rock through the window of a government building.  Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans says 38-year-old Bobby Joseph Hammond was sentenced Wednesday after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Bill of Information for destruction of government property.

U.S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle sentenced HAMMOND to 9 months imprisonment, 2 years supervised release, and ordered to pay $1,330.69 restitution.

Hammond is accused of driving up to the Social Security Administration (SSA) Field Office in Kenner, located at 1616 Joe Yenni Boulevard in Kenner, exited his vehicle, and threw a rock through a window. According to the government, damages totaled $1,330.69. The incident happened March 4, 2017.  

According to nola.com, an affidavit sworn by Department of Homeland Security inspector Kharlotta Johnson said Hammond was seen and recognized as the culprit by several SSA field office employees because he frequently received services at the office.

"Last year, Hammond developed an infatuation with one of the SSA representatives, and mailed the representative letters which were addressed to the SSA field office," Johnson wrote. "(Investigators) determined that the window that Hammond damaged is the window nearest that representative's desk.

"The representative's supervisor, who is familiar with Hammond, reviewed (surveillance) video  from the March 4 incident and identified Hammond to be the person who threw the rock."

Acting U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the Federal Protective Services in investigating this matter.
