A Superior woman who allegedly threatened to expose a damaging Facebook conversation to a man’s family if he didn’t pay her made her initial appearance Nov. 21 in Douglas County Circuit Court.
Kori Evonne Harris, 27, is facing one felony count of threatening to communicate derogatory information.
According to the criminal complaint, Harris became Facebook friends with the man five years ago through other mutual friends. She asked him for help rearranging her storage unit this summer. A few weeks ago, the man told Superior police, she began communicating with him using the profile alias “Kori Karats.”
The tone of the conversation became sexual, the man told police, and soon after, Harris began threatening to send screenshots of their conversations to his family if he didn’t pay her. She initially asked him for money to buy hygiene products, then tacos. When he bought her the tacos, she asked him for cash and demanded his debit card, according to the complaint.
Harris then sent the man a message threatening to expose the conversations unless he gave her $500. Superior police had the victim set up a meeting for the money drop. Harris was arrested when she made contact with him there.
The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of three years and six months of imprisonment and a fine of up to $10,000.
Harris was released on a $1,000 signature bond and ordered to have no contact with the victim or his family. A preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 4.
