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.
So let me state : these charges are totally separate from my criminal charges against Bill Schmalfeldt.
As I’ve explained, I decided to press harassment charges against Bill Schmalfeldt entirely on my own, based on his months of bizarre behavior and complete refusal to stop direct contact with me. Any reasonable person looking at Bill Schmalfeldt and his relentless attacks on me and my family understand why I filed charges.
However, Brett Kimberlin associate Neal Rauhauser called into Bill Schmalfeldt’s podcast today and spun another conspiracy theory:[audio http://stran-storage.s3.amazonaws.com/NealRausher.mp3]
I find it odd that they laugh about Neal saying he won’t be seeing Bill Schmalfeldt at the probable cause hearing.
