Colorado Man Avoids Prison for Threatening Facebook Message

DENVER (AP) – A plea bargain in Utah calls for a Colorado man to avoid a prison sentence for posting a Facebook message threatening to kill “as many girls as I see.” Other judges already have shown 27-year-old Christopher Cleary of Denver some leniency after he stalked and harassed a string of women and teenagers. Experts say Cleary appears to be emblematic of how police and courts typically handle cyberstalking and online harassment cases.
