Nadia Cavner, head of a Springfield, Mo.-based financial consulting firm, pleaded guilty Friday, April 12, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee to a charge she used her company to intimidate the former boyfriend of her daughter as well as his new girlfriend here in Memphis.

Cavner pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge John Fowlkes to one count of federal interstate stalking in a criminal information – a legal process in which a defendant is charged and pleads guilty all in one hearing.

From July 9 to Nov. 15, 2011, Cavner admitted that she and employees of The Nadia Cavner Group, at BancorpSouth, stalked and harassed the un-named couple.

That included crank phone calls, anonymous notes, having the couple followed during trips and even hiring people to disrupt the relationship.

Prosecutors told Fowlkes that Cavner even paid someone to move to Memphis to conduct surveillance on the victims and tried to have electronic listening devices installed in their homes.

Cavner is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 1 by Fowlkes.
