In October of 2018, Ho Ka Terence Yung pled guilty to cyberstalking the University of Texas alum who conducted interviews for admittance into school’s law program. While Yung did not get accepted into the UT law school program, he did get a full scholarship to attend another law school within the state of Texas.
While attending law school, he started to blame the alum who conducted the interview because he was not admitted into the UT program. He then proceeded to start an online campaign of cyber harassment against the alum that included posting violent and racist statements on multiple websites that were falsely attributed to the victim. One instance of the cyberharassment included Yung pretending to be a female candidate for admission claiming that she was sexually assaulted by the victim during the law school interview. Post were also created online claiming that the victim was accused of child molestation.
The FBI and local police worked together to gather electronic evidence in this case. According to the FBI, Yung had also placed ads on websites calling for people to show up at the victim’s home, which activity was ultimately traced back to his roommate’s computer.
The FBI and U.S. Attorney for Delaware obtained records that proved Yung had used his roommate’s computer and internet access, along with his work computer to commit the crime and conceal what he was doing.
Yung recently was sentenced to 46 months in prison.
