Plea hearing set for man accused of cyberstalking sheriff

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A judge has rescheduled a hearing for a guilty plea in the case of a man accused of harassing a county sheriff in Ohio for nearly 20 years via letters, emails and websites.

A criminal affidavit filed earlier this year said the harassment began in 1999 when Columbus resident William Young was arrested by a Delaware County officer on a menacing charge.

Delaware County Sheriff Russell Martin wasn't identified in the affidavit but confirmed in a statement that he was that officer and has been subject to harassment ever since.

Federal Magistrate Judge Norah McCann King has rescheduled the hearing for Young's plea to a charge of cyberstalking from Dec. 8 to Jan. 5.
