As folks are becoming aware of charges that I have filed, I wish to make the following statement.
Yesterday evening, evidence was presented to a District Court Commissioner in Westminster, Maryland, and the Commissioner found it sufficiently persuasive that he issued summonses to Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, and Bill Schmalfeldt for Harassment and Misuse of Electronic Communication. A summons was also issued to Bill Schmalfeldt for Unauthorized Access to a Computer.
On 19 April, preliminary hearings will be held in Westminster to determine if there is probable cause to try these individuals for the crimes indicated.
I will have no further statements concerning these matters until I am advised to do so by the State’s Attorney or my lawyer, except to say that 1.) continuation of past behavior could result in additional charges and that 2.) other investigations continue.
