A public official is accused of stalking a local woman and posting sexual images of her online.
Sean Hall is a commissioner on the Florida Elections Commission. Nicole Lopez said Hall won't leave her alone.
"When I wasn't willing to continue, bad things happened," said Lopez.
Lopez said Hall sent her explicit text messages and was harassing her. She admitted to having an affair with Hall two years ago. She said she ended it, but then found out explicit videos of her were posted online.
"I was taped and recorded without my knowledge," said Lopez.
At one point the harassment was so bad she filed an injunction for protection to try to get it stopped. Hall maintains he didn't send the messages.
Lopez admits they now have to prove the messages from different phone numbers came from Hall.
"There are apps, Google, and ways to text and not tag an individual," said Lopez.
Our partners at Action News took their concerns to private investigator Joshua Askew.
"Apps can spoof phone numbers, and use any number you like to send a message to anyone, and to send anonymous text messages," said Askew.
He says it's becoming a new trend and a subpoena for the phone records should help clear things up. Lopez just wants it all to stop so she can move on with her life.
"I don't have answers, whether it's an obsession or illness," said Lopez.
The governor's office, who appointed Hall; they would only say this is a matter before the courts. The Florida Elections Commission did not issue a statement.
The full statement from Sean Hall's attorney said, "The allegations by Ms. Lopez are false and part of a continuing effort to extort money from Sean Hall, and to embarrass him and his family. Mr. Hall has not harassed Ms. Lopez with text messages, U.S. Mail, telephone calls, or in any other manner.
The Judge in the case has refused to accept any of Ms. Lopez' text message evidence because of its unreliability and the parcel alleged to have been sent through the mail, to Ms. Lopez' in California, has been proven a fake because there is no stamp cancellation or postal markings on the package.
