A 20-year-old convicted stalker, Kevin Cacho, was charged Tuesday with making threats against Century High School as well as a woman he met while both were students at the Santa Ana campus and subsequently rejected his romantic advances, according to the O.C. Register.
Cacho pleaded not guilty to one count each of making criminal threats and violating a domestic violence order with a prior conviction for domestic violence, both felonies. He must return to the court on Feb. 14, which ironically is Valentine’s Day, for a pretrial hearing in the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana.
Cacho reportedly sent threats to the high school and the victim, who befriended him while they were both students at Century, according to the SAPD.
Cacho was apparently “infatuated” with the unnamed woman in high school, but when he told her this she indicated that she was not attracted to him. Things escalated at that point.
Cacho was already sentenced previously on Oct. 10, after he plead guilty to stalking the same woman. At the time he was sentenced to 364 days in jail.
However Cacho seemed not to have learned his lesson. On Jan. 8, the victim received a number of “intimidating” text messages, from an unknown phone number. from an unknown phone number.
The SAPD arrested Cacho, a Santa Ana College student, on Friday.
