DCfCR 1 (Rev. 1212006)

Statement of Tetyana Kimberlin and Brett Kimberlin on behalf oftheir minor
child, KCJ Kimberlin, against William Hoge, I
I, Westminster,
MD 21157, and Aaron Walker, I
I, Manassas, VA 20109 for
violation of Grace's Law, Maryland Criminal Code, 3-805
Our daughter, ic=J Kimberlin, is a 16-year old minor who lives in Montgomery
County Maryland. For the past several years, two adult men, William Hoge, from
Westminster, MD and Aaron Walker, from Manassas, VA, have bullied her
relentlessly through interactive computer services, directly and indirectly. She and
we have repeatedly asked them to stop but they continue to do so and to get others
to join them in their bullying. This has caused her serious emotional distress, so
serious in fact that she has had to change schools twice because students and their
parents read the online bullying and this led to intense bullying and shunning at
school. This has caused her academics to suffer and taken a toll on her emotional
health. She has had severe emotional distress, nightmares, depression, and lives in
fear of injury or death from them and what they will unleash against her online or
otherwise. Many parents will not let their daughters be around ~ because of
the false attacks made online by Mr. Hoge and Mr. Walker.
Mr. Hoge is a 67 year old man and Mr. Walker is a 42 year old man who have been
harassing and stalking our family obsessively and incessantly for the past four years.
They have written literally thousands of posts and tweets about us just to harass us.
They investigate every aspect of our family and business, and they have compiled
and stored gigabytes of data in scores of digital and paper folders about our family.
They conduct forensic analysis of photos and videos associated with us through
meta data markings to find patterns and connections. They have sent people to our
home to take photographs. We have had to can 911 several times because of
unwanted contacts and we have had to install security cameras and 24/7 alarms.
Mr. Hoge and Mr. Walker have exhibited a disturbing level of interest in KC] since
she was 14 with a multi year course of harassing and stalking behavior. They have
attacked her repeatedly, directly and indirectly, through their online presence by
falsely accusing Brett Kimberlin of sex offenses and insinuating and imputing that
KCJ is in danger. They have stated that she needs to be protected and that they
can save her. They have trolled her social media accounts and copied pages, photos,
videos and posts that she has placed online. This frightened her so much that she
was forced to take these social media forums private or shut them down altogether.
They have tried to friend and follow her on Twitter and Facebook. In April 2015,
Twitter permanently suspended Mr. Hoge's Twitter account because it found that he
engaged in "targeted abuse" of our family.
Mr. Hoge and Mr. Walker have orchestrated campaigns to post vile and insulting
~

f- /~-h/ /.=>-

Mr. Hoge posted her birthday and age in the comment section of a blog post by one
of his close associates discussing a fantasy of a sexual pervert "hunger[ing}" over
her at a middle school basketball game. They have contacted the police and falsely
told them that there is child porn at our home and that she is being watched while
undressing. They have said that she is a proper target for online harassment
because of "CoITuption of blood." They have communicated with Tetyana Kimberlin
and offered her money to make false statements to get KD taken away from us.
They have undermined K~'s budding music career by forcing us to take
measures to protect her from their creepy, scary behavior. They have attacked
people who support Kc:::J. including reporters. They have threatened to take
depositions of her and her friends to ask about sexual topics.
Last Thursday, we asked for a Peace Order against Mr. Hoge, and had a hearing
before Montgomery County Judge Creighton where KD and Tetyana testified
about these matters. The judge personally questioned the two witnesses. Mr.
Walker was also present at the hearing. After the hearing, the Judge stated that Mr.
Hoge (and Walker) were engaged in "child abuse" through their online bullying. She
said that they may very well "end up behind bars." She said that hearing the
testimony "broke her heart" and said that no child should ever have to go through
this relentless bullying.
Grace's Law, Md. Code 3-805, was passed in 2013 to protect minors from this type
online bullying. As Senator Kittleman said when the Governor signed the law:
"Grace's Law, which has been in effect since October 1,2013, protects
children and their families from those who use the internet as a means to
bully another individual under the age of 18. This law makes it a crime to use
a computer or smartphone to bully a child and sets penalties of up to a year
in jail and a $500 fine. This law gives our police the tools they need to
prosecute the offenders and eradicate this type of behavior from society. This
law ultimately makes sure that our children and their parents are no longer
helpless to stop cyber bullies."
Grace McComas was bullied at school by a few students for a short time and ended
up killing herself. Two grown men who have been told repeatedly to leave our
family alone have bullied KI::::J for years. These men know the suffering and
distress they are causing and that is why they do it. They want to cause maximum
harm through their online bullying. They celebrate every day by telling their
readers to "get out the popcorn" while the mock, harass, bully and abuse the
Kimberlin family.
As parents, we have an obligation to protect our daughter from Mr. Hoge and Mr.
Walker, the rmgleaders of thIS bullymg campaign. No child should ever have to
