Kathryn Leigh Witt, South Carolina woman arrested for harassment after sending victim more than 200 messages online through a variety of social media accounts- causing emotional and mental anguish.
A Culumbia, South Carolina woman was arrested Monday for sending someone hundreds of harassing messages online, police said.
Kathryn Leigh Witt, 50, faces a charge of first-degree harassment, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), said in a news release.
Witt is alleged to have used multiple fake social media accounts to send an unidentified person more than 200 messages online, according to an arrest warrant cited by The State.
The messages told the victim they were being ‘surveilled and monitored,’ the arrest warrant said. The bombardment reportedly caused the victim to ‘suffer mental and emotional distress.’
Witt remains in custody at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Richland County, SLED said. If convicted, she faces up to three years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
It remained unclear who the victim was or why there were targeted.
