Woman arrested for sending hundreds of threatening texts...to herself
25 year old Jeanne Mundango Manunga was looking for a way to punish her ex boyfriend and his sister-in-law after the former stopped dating Manunga in 2008, so she hatched a plan. Using the sister-in-law's name, she purchased a pre-paid cellphone and then sent herself hundreds of threatening messages and made it appear as though they came from the sister-in-law and ex-boyfriend. Of course, without involving the authorities, there would be no reason for Jeanne to send herself those messages. Claiming to be the victim, Manunga complained to the police no less than 19 times which resulted in the arrest of the sister-in-law three times, each time by a different police precinct. The plot unraveled when the victims went to the phone store and found the salesman who had sold the pre-paid handset to Manunga. The jig was up. In May, a jury convicted Manunga of three felony counts of false imprisonment by fraud or deceit and two misdemeanor counts of making a false police report. On Friday, Superior Court Judge Patrick H. Donahue sentenced Manunga to a year in jail, placed her on three years probation, told her to stay away from her ex-boyfriend and his sister-in-law, and ordered her to repay the victims approximately $50,000. Finally, it appears that the right person will be the one counting off the days until her release, while behind bars.
