Man arraigned for electronic harassment

URBANA — A Missouri man was arraigned on Wednesday in Champaign County circuit court for allegedly electronically harassing four people in Illinois.

Robin B. King, 55, who listed an address in Bella Villa, Mo. was charged with four counts of harassment by electronic communication.

King, who formerly lived in Champaign, allegedly sent racist, obscene and anti-Semitic messages to three women and a man earlier this year.

According to the charges, the incidents took places on March 4, March 5, April 19 and May 16.

After a warrant was issued for King's arrest, he was taken into custody on Sept. 23 in St. Louis and brought to Urbana.

He posted 10 percent of $250,000 bond in late September and has been released from custody.

Judge John Kennedy set King's next court appearance for Nov. 12.
