Facebook Posts Lead to Harassment Charges

Fayette County, IA – A man in Fayette County is facing a harassment charge after he was spreading slanderous claims about another person.

53-year-old Brian Coonradt of Hawkeye is now facing felony extortion and third-degree harassment charges. He had posted on Facebook several times that the victim was a pedophile. He proceeded to threaten the victim that he would spread this false rumor unless the victim paid the relative of Coonradt $3,000.  He had provided a deadline of Jan. 29.

Coonradt was arrested on Friday by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.
