Man enter guilty plea in federal cyberstalking case
DOVER, Del. (AP) — A New York man is facing up to five years in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to wage a cyberstalking campaign against a Delaware woman he met while the two attended Fordham University.
Kristian James O’Hara entered the guilty plea Wednesday. He is scheduled to be sentenced in July.
Prosecutors say O’Hara, who worked as a sportscaster for the college radio station, began cyberstalking the victim, who was on the softball team, in late 2016. Authorities say the harassment lasted through May 2018 and involved the victim’s family and boyfriend.
According to prosecutors, O’Hara’s conduct included using the victim’s cell number to have unwanted late-night food orders delivered to her, posting her information on a sex-chat website, and using her work email address to sign up for Pornhub.com.
