New Zealand Woman Pursues Charge in Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A 31-year-old New Zealand woman has been pursuing charges in Kansas against a teenager she believes harassed her online.

Rachel Gronback lives in Auckland, New Zealand, where she blogs about “fashion, online shopping and body positivity.” Gronback said that when she started receiving inappropriate online sexual messages in November, she was able to identify the suspect as a man who was then a Lawrence high school student.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports she notified Lawrence police. Douglas County prosecutors told her they’re prepared to file a harassment charge, but before a charge can be filed, Gronback would have to be willing to appear in court if it goes to trial.

A Lawrence man, Ron Wilson, has offered to help pay for the trip, but she’s still shy some funds.
