Woman who accused Senator Perry of stalking now behind bars

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An Oklahoma woman who accused State Senator Charles Perry of stalking her is now in the Lubbock County Detention Center.

Cynthia Ortiz is being held on a $50,000 bond, charged with retaliation.

She requested a protective order late last year, but a judge denied her request.

Ortiz's arrest warrant is revealing more about the charge against her.

Ortiz was booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center on Friday, following her arrest in Oklahoma.

Ortiz is a former Lubbock resident who met Senator Perry in 2009 when she was still active in the political scene.

Ortiz now lives and works in Oklahoma.

According to her arrest warrant, her twitter account has accused Perry or someone he hired of hacking her phones, drugging her, installing cameras to spy on her, threatening her, breaking into her house and attempting to poison her.

Ortiz created a Twitter account with the handle @PerryStalkervic.

She has more than 3,000 tweets.

Authorities said in December she posted, "I have had a zillion people offer to kill Senator Perry to end my misery." The warrant states that Ortiz said she did not want that to happen.

In January, she tweeted that she wished she could beat Perry up, but would never actually do it.

The warrant mentions emails Ortiz sent to Perry back in 2011, stating he turned a "crazy sincere advocate into an adversary...pretty much as crazy."

KCBD has reached out to Perry's office for comment.
