Edmond Man Arrested, Accused Of Stalking Local TV Personality
EDMOND, Oklahoma - An Edmond man is accused of stealing a woman's identity to try to stalk a local television personality. He is in jail on $500,000 bond.
It turns out he's been in trouble before for stalking coeds at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Jordan Bryce Richison, 26, is currently in the Oklahoma county jail accused of Fraud and Violating the Computer Crimes Act.
News 9 Crime Tracker Adrianna Iwasinski spoke with the young woman whose identity was used to create that fake email account. She did not want to appear on camera since this is an ongoing investigation. But she did say she felt threatened by him and she's glad he's behind bars, especially since he's been charged with stalking girls in the past.
Back in 2008, Richison was charged with stalking a girl on the UCO campus. She claims he keyed her car and had been harassing her with phone calls, text messages, and messages on Facebook. He was also charged for stalking another young woman on campus in 2010.
She claims Richison interviewed her for an article he wrote for The Vista, the UCO college newspaper.
She claims after that, Richison tried to contact her several times, and even took pictures of her at a church event.
The victim claims he also created a fake Facebook account, one where he pretended to be a woman.
Court papers state Richison admitted to creating the fake account and admitted "it was wrong" to do so. Both victims filed victim's protective orders against Richison.
Richison received deferred sentences in both cases and was ordered to get counseling.
In his sentencing paperwork, he admitted to sending "a large number of phone calls, text messages and Facebook messages" and acknowledged that he "scared her" and "made her believe" he was "stalking her."
The woman who filed the most recent police report said obviously, Richison did not learn his lesson the first time. She said hopefully by pressing charges, it won't happen again.
We are protecting the identities of all the women involved. We did try to contact Richison's family, but they were not at home.
