Woman Imprisoned for Sending Hundreds of Threatening Texts to Herself

Jeanne Mundango Manunga, scumbag, was recently jailed by Santa Ana, California police for sending nasty, threatening texts to herself. She was posing as her sister-in-law and ex-boyfriend, both of whom were jailed. Now she's in prison where she belongs.

But how did she pull off such a feat? Well, it wasn't easy. First, she bought a pre-paid cellphone under her sister-in-law's name. Then she proceeded to send hundreds of threatening messages to herself, before visiting the police 19 times to complain.


The sister-in-law was arrested three times before she, the police and the ex-boyfriend did a little detective work.

The sister-in-law and ex-boyfriend were quite convinced that something was afoot. So, they went along to a cell phone store, where they happily learned that Manunga had bought a pre-paid cell phone under her sister-in-law's name.

Once the police had worked out that most of the calls had been made from places that seemed remarkably adjacent to Manunga's home or place of employment, their suspicions were deeply aroused. - CNET

For her efforts, Manunga was convicted of three felony counts of "false imprisonment by fraud or deceit and two misdemeanor counts of making a false police report." [Orange County Register via CNET]
