White woman arrested for sending racist, harassing emails to New Orleans television news station targeting a Black On-Air Talent Over Her Appearance
A Louisiana woman is being charged with one count of cyberstalking after authorities say she sent dozens of threatening emails to a local news station. Caroline Kain, 57, was arrested on May 21, on charges of sending emails to not only the news station, but in particular one on-air journalist whose name has not been made public. The emails were sent between May 5 – May 11 called Black employees at the station the N-word and verbally attacked the unnamed reporter’s appearance, demanded the news station fire her and “baselessly accused her of criminal conduct ‘punishable by death’.”
According to LawandCrime.com, “Kain does not appear to have any extant criminally charged offenses in Orleans Parish,” so she could be looking at “a maximum sentence of one year in prison, a $2,000 fine, or both.”
Kain has since been released from police custody on a $2,500 bond, and has a court date scheduled for June 6.
