A Utah company that provides telephone services for hearing and speech-impaired clients has asked a federal judge to disconnect a person who has made more than 300 obscene calls to its female employees since mid-July.
The caller, identified as "John Doe" in court papers, dialed various Sorenson Communications numbers and, when female staff answered, engaged in heavy breathing and made obscene and indecent proposals. In some instances, the caller left pornographic voicemail messages. Some 30 women have received the calls; at least one received six calls in a single day.
The man has falsely claimed to be a customer and at least once said he was "Rick Smith," which the company believes to be a fake name.
