Rob Sanders, the prosecutor of Kenton County, Kentucky has been true to his word.
He promised that he would track down and prosecute the keyboard warriors who made threats against the Covington Catholic HS kids. He now says that subpoenas have been issued and search warrants authorized in order to place the perpetrators behind bars.
Kentucky law allows for the imprisonment of anyone making death threats to 1 to 5 years in prison or 5 to 10 years for a mass killing threat. Sanders said that investigators were in and out of his office all day. It looks like the man means business.
Sanders said he has had investigators inside of his office all day.
Rob Sanders: When it comes to the offenses that rise to the felony level we can extradite. Now it’s not as easy as arresting a Twitter handle we can’t just reach out and arrest someone, half the time they’re using a fake name, fake profile picture, that sort of thing. We have to go through the process of issuing subpoenas, search warrants… It’s already underway. I’ve had detectives in and out of my office all day today.
The boys have also retained the pro bono services of famed attorney Robert Burns , who is expected to start filing court papers against the fake news organizations that have been lying about the boys long after the original story has been totally destroyed.
