"It’s absolutely ridiculous. It’s overstated, and when you hear all of the evidence and see what happened, I think there will be a whole new twist to the case," DaLuise's public defender, Philip Dube, said of the charges at a press conference after her arraignment.
Feinstein was also arrested on March 12. Police had developed a theory that Feinstein might actually have been cyber-stalking DaLuise by himself all along.
“I looked closer at him, had reason to believe that he was involved in the stalking,” McCauley said.
“I'm the one that originally told the police when they contacted me about ... Dawn's ruse and about the situation,” Feinstein said. “So for me to be named a suspect was just mind-boggling to me.”
For now, the case lies in the mountain of evidence -- texts, emails, hard drives -- being pored over by the LA Sheriff’s Department Cyber-Crimes Unit.
