HR Strange But True!
December 18, 2003

Charles Booher, the California man accused of threatening to kill or injure employees of a Canadian company he believed had been bombarding him with unsolicited e-mails, pleaded not guilty in his first court appearance last week.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that Booher, 44, has become a cause célèbre on the Web since he was indicted in November on eight counts of sending threatening communications over the Internet.

Federal prosecutors allege that Booher repeatedly threatened officials at a Canadian Internet company in e-mails and phone messages, after his e-mail was flooded with offers for penile enlargement medication. The government alleges that Booher persisted with the threats, even after being warned to stop by police.

Booher told the Mercury News that the spam set off an emotional trigger, and he just wanted to be left alone.

"I felt like I was just getting some rage out," he said.
