Leader of Peacemakers arrested, charged with Harassment

ROANOKE, VA. - Shawn Michael Hunter, 49, was arrested and charged with Harassment by Computer. Hunter, the leader of the anti-violence group "The Peacemakers Inc.," says he was trying to send a lewd photo to his lady friend via his phone when the picture was accidentally sent to the wrong person. Hunter explains to WFXR News that while he was trying to send the photo, his phone froze up and he hit the screen a few times and the photo was sent to a female member of the media. Hunter says as soon as realized what happened, he called and texted that person telling her the picture was not meant for her.

 

According to court documents, the incident happened on October 4th. Hunter was arrested and charged with "harassment by computer" on Wednesday, October 11th. Hunter says police have taken his phone and computer as evidence. He is due in court on November 15th and he says he's sure to be vindicated in this crime.

 

Hunter posted an explanation on the Peacemakers facebook page explaining the mistake but that post has since been taken down. Hunter is a registered sex offender. He was arrested and charged with Aggravated Sexual battery in 1987 when he was 19 years of age.
