ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany prosecutors warn people that sending veiled death threats, even electronically, is against the law, and you can be arrested.
Stephno Hodge was indicted this week on 15 counts of terroristic threats, battery, and gun charges. Prosecutors say he hit the mother of his child in front of kids at Lincoln Elementary School and sent death threats through calls and text pictures.
"Physically struck here. Then in the course of events sent threatening messages, allegedly threatening to kill her or presenting images of dead persons. Saying that is what's going to happen to you," said Greg Edwards Dougherty D. A.
The District Attorney warns that a death threat of any kind is a crime.
