Champaign woman arrested for cyberstalking

CHAMPAIGN — Parkland College police arrested a Champaign woman on Tuesday for "cyberstalking" after she sent repeated emails to a male staff member at the college.

Silver Damsen, 48, who listed an address in the 0-100 block of East Healey Street, Champaign, pleaded innocent on Wednesday to one count of felony cyberstalking.

According to a Parkland College police report, Damsen had been sending repeated emails to a 42-year-old college staff member, including more than 20 emails sent to the man since November.

The report said police contacted Damsen and told her to stop sending the emails to the staff member, but the woman continued to send them.

Police arrested Damsen as she got off a Greyhound bus at the Illinois Terminal in downtown Champaign at 6:23 p.m. Tuesday.

Judge Tom Difanis ordered Damsen to have no contact with the man or his place of employment and set Damsen's next court appearance for Feb. 14.
