Warren Co. woman sentenced to 3 years in prison for harassing former teacher

BUTLERVILLE, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County woman was sentenced to three years in prison Tuesday for harassing her former school teacher with numerous email and phone messages.

Warren County officials said Kristina Dotson, 20, of Butlerville, Ohio sent multiple messages to the victims who are husband and wife.

Reports stated the wife is a former teacher of Dotson and first began receiving the troublesome emails on her work email in 2013.

When she changed school districts, Doston found out where her new employment was and began sending her emails at her new work address, officials say.

Dotson also reportedly began sending emails to the husband in 2015.

Officials said Lebanon Police Officer Patrick Jenkinson warned Dotson to stop contacting the victims or risk arrest for harassment on April 23, 1015.

That same day, Dotson then sent five emails to the victims threatening, "You will regret contacting the police" and "I'm tired of being reported to the police, try again and see what happens," according to authorities.

Again on April 28, 2015, police said Dotson sent two more emails, one of which threatened the husband's life, "Try calling the police and a hit man will shoot you."

Dotson entered a guilty plea to intimidation, a felony of the 3rd degree and telephone harassment, a misdemeanor of the 1st degree. She was sentenced by Warren County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Gilb.
