Forty-eight year old New York Man falls for twenty-eight year old Woman.
Man allegedly e-mails Woman, texts her and posts on her Father’s Facebook page for work.
All told, seven lovestruck communications.
Law enforcement authorities instruct Man to cease and desist.
Man also texts New York police officer requesting assistance in reaching Woman and Father to make their wedding plans.
Man is arrested for aggravated harassment by city police as well as federal agents, and tossed in jail. Man is confined pending bail.
Impressive response from law enforcement?
Well, Father is a wealthy businessman and New York City’s mayor.
Man’s alleged conduct represents a modern, high tech twist to traditional stalking, known as “cyberstalking”. Computer and, more specifically, internet-facilitated stalking. No face to face contact or interaction required.
Man faces seven years’ incarceration.
Man’s defense reportedly is that the charges are ridiculous.
Oh, Woman has never met or even heard of Man. And Man works in a pizza place.
Man may also be charged with forging a federal judge’s signature on a court order in an unrelated matter.
