Police: NY man sent threatening emails to ex-wife

Published September 06. 2019 05:26AM


State police have charged a New York man with harassing and threatening to harm his ex-wife.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed by Trooper Tristan Bennett at Troop N, Fern Ridge:

On May 2, Bennett responded to local police for a report of terroristic threats. Police said that the victim called and reported being harassed by her ex-husband, Paul Trifilo, 50, of Hadley, via emails.

Police said the victim moved to Carbon County after receiving notice from the New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision advising that Trifilo was paroled and is currently wanted for skipping his parole meeting.

The victim said that she received over 60 emails from Trifilo beginning on May 1, and that she had an order of protection against him.

One of the emails from Trifilo stated: “This only ends with the death of one of us. I will not take any more plea deals regarding these charges. This means that every time you call the police you will be asked to testify at jury trial. If you can’t or won’t testify my charges are immediately dismissed. If you do testify, I or my counsel will destroy whatever ivory tower you now inhabit. Guilty or not, upon my release the game begins again, ad infinitum, until the death of one of us ...”

The victim said that due to these messages, she has had to leave her primary residence and hide at a friend’s house.

Trifilo faces charges of terrorist threats and harassment.

He is currently incarcerated in the Carbon County Correctional Facility in lieu of $200,000 bail, and is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Sept. 18 before District Judge Eric M. Schrantz of Jim Thorpe.


This man needs to stay put, and she needs to change her e-mail, and arm herself?
But there's another story I read, which threatens all of us... All of our freedoms!

The city of San Francisco has labeled the National Rifle Association a domestic terrorist organization. The Board of Supervisors at a Tuesday meeting adopted a resolution written by Supervisor Catherine Stefani.

When do "words" matter? Will anyone call these people out? The reason for this statement is to bully up the masses to support the "Red Flag" concept. These inept city officials also need to get the focus off their Feces/Needles in the streets and homelessness epidemic. They threaten us all, weather your NRA member or not, they bring threat, worse than any other form of terrorism.
I would hope this publication (TN), starts covering the stories that really matter. Oh... perhaps it's time to build a wall around PA to keep these outsiders (Paul Trifilo) ... safely... OUT!
Good Morning Country Girl.
Our President, Donald J Trump didn't label "ANTIFA" with that classification, it was DHS in 2016, before Donald J Trump was even elected POTUS.
There was a confidential intelligence report by the DHS and the FBI accusing them as "anarchist extremists" who attack police, government and political institutions. You must be aware of how the masked antifa thugs show up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beat on people. They've even used Molotov cocktails, started fires, and smashed windows.
Truth is, 350,000 people signed a petition for President Donald J Trump to “formally recognize” these anti-fascists as terrorists.
TERRORIST: a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
That suits to ANTIFA, not the NRA. I don't recall NRA folk sporting masks and hoodies either.
Oh yeah, the Democrats are loosing people, I am one of them. I was Card Carrying Union Member of the Democrat Party, and then along came the Clintons and NAFTA. Today? They're moving us toward Communism.
Democrats should stick with straws and Stormy Daniels.
