JUST IN: Herndon Man Pleads Guilty to Cyberstalking

A Herndon man pleaded guilty today to cyberstalking a victim in New York, according to a release by U.S. Attorney Zachary Terwilliger.

Brandon Theresa, 21, took part in a “cyberstalking campaign against a victim” between May 2015 through December last year, according to the office. His plea was released today (April 16).

Investigators said Theresa accessed the individual’s online accounts without permission and impersonated the victim and the victim’s friend to get information about the individual. Court documents indicate Theresa used U.S. Postal Service accounts, which give information about mail received at specific addresses, to find other ways to watch the victim.

Theresa pleaded guilty to cyberstalking and faces a maximum of five years in prison. A federal district court judge will determine sentencing.
