Woman arrested for Facebook threats

January 14, 2011

Former congressional candidate Cheryl Allen faces eight counts of felony intimidation charges for allegedly making serious threats against public officials on her Facebook page earlier this week. On Monday, her page showed a series of posts promising revenge against the courts—including four Morgan County judges, the county prosecutor and a Morgan County Council member. Officials said the threats may stem from Allen’s reaction to the recent dismissal of a discrimination case she filed.
