Vincent P. Johnson, of Brick, New Jersey, was arrested Friday by FBI agents.  A federal grand jury handed up a 14-count indictment against him, charging him with four counts of interfering with the exercise of civil rights, and five counts each of making interstate threatening communications and using a computer with the intent to place a person in reasonable fear of death or bodily injury, commonly called cyberstalking.

 The Government alleges that between November 2006 and February 2009, Johnson used the Internet user name “Devilfish579” to repeatedly send threatening e-mails to employees of the Latino Justice Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund; the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund; the National Council of La Raza; the League of United Latin American Citizens; and the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders.
