But Owain… I KNOW Who You Are!

Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 10.54.31 AMThere are a couple questions Ms. “Owain Penllyn” needs to ask herself.

  1. Does she realize threatening someone online is a criminal offense in the state of Iowa?
  2. Does she realize harassing someone online is a criminal offense in the state of Iowa?
  3. Does she realize stalking someone online is a criminal offense in the state of Iowa?
  4. Given the sheer number of people who have been stalked, harassed and threatened by Ms. “Penllyn”, can she be SURE none of them have shared her identity with me and the proof of that identity?

I am finished with the lawsuit route. In Iowa, Harassment and Stalking are criminal charges.

Here’s a look at Iowa’s harassment law.

708.7 HARASSMENT.
1. a. A person commits harassment when, with intent to
intimidate, annoy, or alarm another person, the person does any of
the following:
(1) Communicates with another by telephone, telegraph, writing,
or via electronic communication without legitimate purpose and in a
manner likely to cause the other person annoyance or harm.
(2) Places a simulated explosive or simulated incendiary device
in or near a building, vehicle, airplane, railroad engine or railroad
car, or boat occupied by another person.
(3) Orders merchandise or services in the name of another, or to
be delivered to another, without the other person’s knowledge or
consent.
(4) Reports or causes to be reported false information to a law
enforcement authority implicating another in some criminal activity,
knowing that the information is false, or reports the alleged
occurrence of a criminal act, knowing the act did not occur.
b. A person commits harassment when the person, purposefully
and without legitimate purpose, has personal contact with another
person, with the intent to threaten, intimidate, or alarm that other
person. As used in this section, unless the context otherwise
requires, “personal contact” means an encounter in which two or
more people are in visual or physical proximity to each other.
“Personal contact” does not require a physical touching or oral
communication, although it may include these types of contacts.
2. a. A person commits harassment in the first degree when
the person commits harassment involving a threat to commit a forcible
felony, or commits harassment and has previously been convicted of
harassment three or more times under this section or any similar
statute during the preceding ten years.
b. Harassment in the first degree is an aggravated
misdemeanor.
3. a. A person commits harassment in the second degree when
the person commits harassment involving a threat to commit bodily
injury, or commits harassment and has previously been convicted of
harassment two times under this section or any similar statute during
the preceding ten years.
b. Harassment in the second degree is a serious misdemeanor.

4. a. Any other act of harassment is harassment in the third
degree.
b. Harassment in the third degree is a simple misdemeanor.
5. For purposes of determining whether or not the person should
register as a sex offender pursuant to the provisions of chapter
692A, the fact finder shall make a determination as provided in
section 692A.126.

Here’s a look at Iowa’s Stalking Law.
>708.11 STALKING.
1. As used in this section, unless the context otherwise
requires:
a. “Accompanying offense” means any public offense committed
as part of the course of conduct engaged in while committing the
offense of stalking.
b. “Course of conduct” means repeatedly maintaining a visual
or physical proximity to a person without legitimate purpose or
repeatedly conveying oral or written threats, threats implied by
conduct, or a combination thereof, directed at or toward a person.
c. “Immediate family member” means a spouse, parent, child,
sibling, or any other person who regularly resides in the household
of a specific person, or who within the prior six months regularly
resided in the household of a specific person.
d. “Repeatedly” means on two or more occasions.
2. A person commits stalking when all of the following occur:
a. The person purposefully engages in a course of conduct
directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to
fear bodily injury to, or the death of, that specific person or a
member of the specific person’s immediate family.
b. The person has knowledge or should have knowledge that the
specific person will be placed in reasonable fear of bodily injury
to, or the death of, that specific person or a member of the specific
person’s immediate family by the course of conduct.
c. The person’s course of conduct induces fear in the
specific person of bodily injury to, or the death of, the specific
person or a member of the specific person’s immediate family.
3. a. A person who commits stalking in violation of this
section commits a class “C” felony for a third or subsequent offense.

b. A person who commits stalking in violation of this section
commits a class “D” felony if any of the following apply:
(1) The person commits stalking while subject to restrictions
contained in a criminal or civil protective order or injunction, or
any other court order which prohibits contact between the person and
the victim, or while subject to restrictions contained in a criminal
or civil protective order or injunction or other court order which
prohibits contact between the person and another person against whom
the person has committed a public offense.
(2) The person commits stalking while in possession of a
dangerous weapon, as defined in section 702.7.
(3) The person commits stalking by directing a course of conduct
at a specific person who is under eighteen years of age.
(4) The offense is a second offense.
c. A person who commits stalking in violation of this section
commits an aggravated misdemeanor if the offense is a first offense
which is not included in paragraph “b”.
4. Violations of this section and accompanying offenses shall be
considered prior offenses for the purpose of determining whether an
offense is a second or subsequent offense. A conviction for,
deferred judgment for, or plea of guilty to a violation of this
section or an accompanying offense which occurred at any time prior
to the date of the violation charged shall be considered in
determining that the violation charged is a second or subsequent
offense. Deferred judgments pursuant to section 907.3 for violations
of this section or accompanying offenses and convictions or the
equivalent of deferred judgments for violations in any other states
under statutes substantially corresponding to this section or
accompanying offenses shall be counted as previous offenses. The
courts shall judicially notice the statutes of other states which
define offenses substantially equivalent to the offenses defined in
this section and its accompanying offenses and can therefore be
considered corresponding statutes. Each previous violation of this
section or an accompanying offense on which conviction or deferral of
judgment was entered prior to the date of the violation charged shall
be considered and counted as a separate previous offense. In
addition, however, accompanying offenses committed as part of the
course of conduct engaged in while committing the violation of
stalking charged shall be considered prior offenses for the purpose
of that violation, even though the accompanying offenses occurred at
approximately the same time. An offense shall be considered a second
or subsequent offense regardless of whether it was committed upon the
same person who was the victim of any other previous offense.
5. Notwithstanding section 804.1, rule of criminal procedure 2.7,
Iowa court rules, or any other provision of law to the contrary, upon
the filing of a complaint and a finding of probable cause to believe
an offense has been committed in violation of this section, or after
the filing of an indictment or information alleging a violation of
this section, the court shall issue an arrest warrant, rather than a
citation or summons. A peace officer shall not issue a citation in
lieu of arrest for a violation of this section. Notwithstanding
section 804.21 or any other provision of law to the contrary, a
person arrested for stalking shall be immediately taken into custody
and shall not be released pursuant to pretrial release guidelines, a
bond schedule, or any similar device, until after the initial
appearance before a magistrate. In establishing the conditions of
release, the magistrate may consider the defendant’s prior criminal
history, in addition to the other factors provided in section 811.2.

6. For purposes of determining whether or not the person should
register as a sex offender pursuant to the provisions of chapter
692A, the fact finder shall make a determination as provided in
section 692A.126.

Ms. “Penllyn” needs to understand that I KNOW, I CAN PROVE, and I have OTHER WITNESSES — past victims of her harassment — who can identify her. The next harassing comment will be joined with the three previous and will be directed to the attention to the Clinton County Attorney for investigation.
