IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An eastern Iowa man accused of sending accusatory letters about a major high school football program says he’s pleading not guilty.
Iowa City police say Daniel Stone, of Solon, was arrested Wednesday after DNA evidence linked him to several letters that allegedly threatened administrators at Regina High School in Iowa City.
Stone told the Iowa City Press-Citizen that he’s pleading not guilty to charges of harassment and interference with official acts and intends to fight the charges at a trial.
Administrators say they received letters last summer that said the school’s football coaching staff was providing performance enhancing drugs to the student athletes. The letters made several demands in exchange for silence on the allegations.
An investigation into the letters’ allegations turned up nothing.
