MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A prominent Missouri financial adviser and campaign fundraiser for President Barack Obama has entered a sentencing plea deal to charges she stalked and harassed her daughter's ex-boyfriend.
Nadia Cavner was sentenced Monday to five years of probation and six months of home detention.
Prosecutors say Cavner asked private investigators to follow and conduct surveillance on her daughter Maral's former boyfriend and his new girlfriend in Memphis.
Prosecutor Brian Coleman says Cavner discussed the possibility of someone becoming violent with the ex-boyfriend, but not to the point of killing him.
Records show Cavner organized a July 2008 fundraiser for Obama in Springfield, Mo., and has donated to Democrat U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill.
Federal prosecutors had recommended probation for Cavner, who pleaded guilty in April to interstate stalking.
