Mistress of Petraeus won’t be charged with cyberstalking

Washington – The mistress of former CIA director David Petraeus will reportedly not be charged with cyberstalking in connection with a recent scandal linked to Petraeus’ resignation. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), an attorney for Paula Broadwell provided the news source with a letter from U.S. Attorney Robert O’Neill indicating the charges would not be brought.
William C. Daniels, Justice Department spokesman, is quoted by the AP as stating of the decision, “The decision on whether to bring a prosecution is always a serious matter, and one that should never be undertaken without the most thoughtful deliberation… After applying relevant case law to the particular facts of this case, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida has decided not to pursue a federal case regarding the alleged acts of ‘cyberstalking‘ involving Paula Broadwell.”
Petraeus revealed last month that he and Broadwell, both married, had engaged in an extramarital affair.
