WHO: Jeanne Mundango Manunga
WHAT: The Orange County woman was sentenced to a year in jail after authorities found out she sent herself hundreds of threatening text messages. Manunga had told police her ex-boyfriend and his sister-in-law were behind the threats. She also was placed on three years probation and ordered to pay $50,000 in restitution.
WHY IT WAS A BAD IDEA: Whatever Manunga’s motivation was, she chewed up valuable time and resources of the Santa Ana Police Department.
