  • Rachelle Santiago won't be doing any more social work.
Therapist Rachelle Santiago sent a text message to a Fort Riley soldier saying: "You want a crazy bitch, I will be your crazy bitch."

Santiago, 44, was treating a soldier for post-traumatic stress disorder. She began stalking him and his family after the sergeant didn't return her affection.

On Monday, Santiago was sentenced to three years' probation. She also agreed to surrender her social work license to the Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board and also agreed not to reapply for a license in Kansas or any other state. She pleaded guilty to one count each of fleeing from a police officer, criminal restraint, making a criminal threat and unlawfully entering military property.

Santiago admitted in her plea that she became physically aggressive with a solider she was treating in January 2011. She admitted embracing and rubbing her body against the solider. She also admitted leaving phone messages and sending text messages threatening the soldier. Once the soldier reported her, Santiago was banned from the post by military authorities.

After being banished, Santiago breached the gate at 110 miles per hour before being arrested by military police.

As we previously reported, Santiago was accused of groping the sergeant and telling him that she wanted to have sex with him on January 22. The sergeant wasn't down because he was trying to fix his marriage.

Santiago allegedly called and texted him 15 times, including sending a photo of pink lingerie. The sergeant texted her to stop calling and messaging him. But she allegedly didn't stop.

It gets creepier from there, with Santiago allegedly showing up at the sergeant's house and sitting in her car nearby. This spooked the sergeant, who told investigators that he felt "like he did during his deployment, edgy with a need for a heightened sense of security to protect his home and his family."

The sergeant ended up meeting Santiago at a Burger King to tell her to stop harassing him. At BK, she handed him an envelope with the words "My Master" written on the front. The sergeant didn't open the envelope. Santiago was apparently undeterred, removing her wedding ring and telling the sergeant that he was "her man."

Santiago also sent texts saying, "I don't want to hurt you, you are hurting me," "I will eat your lunch. The only way you can protect your boys," "You come talk to me or I will jack your world 6 ways to Sunday and don't doubt my ability to do this ... "

The day of the high-speed chase, the sergeant found an envelope with the word "Master" printed on the front beneath a car seat. Inside was a handwritten card in which Santiago professed her love. She also sent him perfumed panties.

Santiago was indicted on charges of stalking, attempting to elude police, sexual battery, making a terroristic threat and unlawfully entering a federal military installation.
