Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo announced the arrest of Sean D. Slattery, , of Lyndhurst, on charges of Stalking, Cyber-Harassment, and making a False Report to Law Enforcement.
According to authorities, on Mar. 16th members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit received information from the 24-year-old victim and from Sean D. Slattery about a series of alarming text messages that were sent to both of them.
The ensuing investigation revealed that Slattery falsified his statements to detectives and in fact was the person who created the alarming and harassing messages, which were designed to appear as if the sender was someone else.
As a result of the investigation, police arrested Slattery on Mar. 20th and charged with one count of Stalking, one count of Cyber-Harassment, and one count of False or Fictitious Report to Law Enforcement.
Officials said Slattery is scheduled for a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on April 4th, at 8:30 a.m.
Acting Prosecutor Calo states that the charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
