Hanson Richard Larkin has admitted to sending threatening text messages to an anonymous internet acquaintance who wished no further contact from him. He traveled by train to Orlando to see this person, all the while sending anti-Semitic text messages and threatening to do violence against Jewish persons, according to the Associated Press and WNDB.
Larkin, 33, pleaded guilty to knowingly and intentionally transmitting a threatening communication in interstate commerce, which is a felony in Miami-Dade County, on Thursday.
The person who turned Larkin in said they had been in contact since 2017, and had exchanged photos and phone calls, as well as social media messages. Though the person repeatedly urged him not to come to Miami-Dade, Larkin took a train from DeLand, where he was living, to Miami to meet the plaintiff on August 24 of this year. On the 25th, Larkin texted the individual to tell him Larkin was outside of his house.
When the plaintiff refused to meet with him, Larkin turned threatening, sending multiple threats and anti-Semitic texts designed to force the person into meeting with him.
