We have received confirmation today that Jeromie Williams, a “Social Media Specialist” at Playboy Plus Entertainment Inc., is under investigation by the Boulder Police Department, SPVM, and the Sûreté du Québec for stalking Kim Johnston and her young sons in Colorado.
This news, confirmed by Jeromie Williams himself, comes as an informed source has identified potential charges under the Criminal Code of Canada for criminal harassment, uttering threats, and intimidation:
Section 264.(1)-(2) of the Criminal Code prohibits “repeatedly communicating with, either directly or indirectly, [another] person or anyone known to them” that “causes that
other person reasonably, in all the circumstances, to fear for their safety or the safety of anyone known to them.” As we have noted previously, Jeromie has spent much of the past week threatening to come to Boulder, Colorado, and “fuck up” Kim Johnston and her “faggy” sons. Jeromie also e-mailed us links to YouTube videos of Kim’s 16-year-old son, playing basketball at his high school:
These links, and contact information for Kim’s sons, their schools, employers and/or business partners, were also posted on Jeromie’s personal website. They have received dozens of threatening, obscene and hateful text messages and e-mails, and their employers and business partners have also been contacted. A collection of other threats may be viewed here. According to the Criminal Code, punishment for this offence may include “imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years.”
Section 264.1(1) of the Criminal Code prohibits “knowingly utter[ing], convey[ing] or caus[ing] any person to receive a threat (a) to cause death or bodily harm to any person; …
[or] (c) to kill, poison or injure an animal or bird that is the property of any person.” As we have noted, Jeromie’s “campaign” against Kim and her sons has included a number of messages that can only be interpreted as threats of harm or death. He “knows where we are” and he’s going to make sure we “get it”:
The punishment for threatening people could include “imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years,” while the punishment for threatening animals could include “imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years.”
Section 423.(1)(a)-(b) of the Criminal Code prohibits “threats of violence to [a] person” or her children, or intimidation by “violence or other injury,” “for the purpose of compelling another person to abstain from doing anything that he or she has a lawful right to do, or to do anything that he or she has a lawful right to abstain from doing.”
Jeromie is angry that we have exposed his history of fabricating events, people, and even witnesses in his articles for months in order to get on TV. No doubt he is also angry that he was fired from his position at the Examiner as a result of this evidence. He is also angry that we have exposed his latest threats.
He has promised to come to Colorado to “get” Kim unless she deletes this blog, exposing his shameful activities, which she has an absolute
right to do:
Of course, exposing the truth is not defamation, and it is not illegal. We think of it more like a public service.
Punishment for the offence of intimidation could include “imprisonment for a term of not more than five years.”
We are particularly concerned by the apparently prurient nature of the posting of personal pictures of Kim’s young sons on Jeromie’s personal website. This has included pictures and videos from high school basketball games (when Kim’s son was 16) and graduation ceremonies.
Concerned former members of the group “100,000 strong to ban Nathan Kotylak from the Canada Olympic team” have noted that Jeromie Williams also maintains an active Stickam account. This site, which the New York Times has described as “icky”, is notorious as a playground for internet predators and pedophiles.
In light of ongoing investigations, we demand that Mr. Williams remove all pictures of Kim’s sons from his personal website, and all contact information for them or for their schools, employers or associates.
Meanwhile, Jeromie has complained that this website, exposing his fraudulent and illegal activities, constitutes a violation of international law. It unclear whether Jeromie is alleging this site is a war crime, crime against humanity, or, possibly, a violation of the Geneva Convention, or all three, but Kim’s legal team is awaiting confirmation as they formulate a defence strategy to deal with these very serious charges.
