DES MOINES (AP) — A woman who supports a fired Des Moines football coach was accused of sending multiple emails to a school official who investigated his case.
Carol Tiernan-Williams was accused last year of emailing Amanda Easton and posting on Facebook about her. Easton, who works at Des Moines Lincoln High School, reported the incidents to authorities.
Tiernan-Williams is the administrator of a Facebook group that supports the reinstatement of Tom Mihalovich, a former coach who was dismissed after an investigation determined that he violated policies against bullying, harassment and corporal punishment.
The Police Department said that it warned Tiernan-Williams last year to stop sending messages. Easton reported more emails on Tuesday.
Tiernan-Williams turned herself in to police and was charged with third-degree harassment. Court records do not list an attorney.
