COLUMBIA (AP) - A South Carolina woman has been arrested for allegedly sending more than 200 harassing messages to someone via social media.
News outlets report 50-year-old Kathryn Leigh Witt was charged with harassment Monday.
South Carolina Law Enforcement in an arrest warrant said Witt created multiple fake social media accounts to send the messages and told the victim he or she was being "surveilled and monitored."
Police say the bombardment caused the victim to "suffer mental and emotional distress."
A conviction on a charge of first-degree harassment is punishable by up to three years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
