HARRISBURG—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Amy Kruleski, age 40, of New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Court Judge Jennifer P. Wilson to 6 months’ imprisonment for cyberstalking.  

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Kruleski previously admitted to harassing and intimidating two individuals in May 2018 through an electronic communication service.  Over three days, Kruleski made numerous phone calls to those individuals, pretending to be a family member, and claiming to have been kidnapped.  During the calls, Kruleski claimed that she had been drugged, beaten, and sexually assaulted.  Law enforcement confirmed relatively quickly, however, that the person Kruleski was purporting to be had not been kidnapped and was safe.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlo D. Marchioli prosecuted the case.
