Kalachik, 27, pleaded guilty in Clark County Superior Court to intimidating a witness as part of a plea bargain negotiated between Senior Deputy Prosecutor Kasey Vu and Kalachik’s attorney, Todd Pascoe. In exchange for the guilty plea, Vu dismissed charges of threats to bomb, harassment death threats, and a second count of intimidating a witness.Kalachik admitted, through a Russian interpreter, that on Oct. 1 he intimidated Vancouver police Officer Ilia Botvinnik by saying in a recorded jail phone call that “I’ll have him sleep in a bulletproof vest for the rest of his life.” He also admitted to making other threats over the phone.There was no indication in court records that Kalachik attempted to act on any of the threats.Judge Suzan Clark sentenced Kalachik to 171/2 months in prison, 12 months of probation and $2,300 in court fines and fees.Kalachik made the phone threats while he was serving 90 days in the Clark County Jail for threatening Botvinnik when Botvinnik stopped him July 25 for driving without a seat belt. Botvinnik found out during the traffic stop that Kalachik also lacked a valid driver’s license and insurance. Botvinnik attempted to give him a traffic citation, but Kalachik refused to accept it.
