North Carolina Rep. Henson pleads guilty to cyberstalking

A North Carolina state lawmaker is pleading guilty to cyberstalking his estranged wife, a misdemeanor that will be dismissed if he completes 18 months of probation.
Second-term Republican Rep. Cody Henson, who represents Transylvania, Polk and part of Henderson County, pleaded guilty on Tuesday. He said earlier he won’t seek re-election next year.
The state Attorney General’s office handled the prosecution and spokeswoman Laura Brewer said Henson must complete a domestic violence treatment class, mental health and substance misuse assessments, and any follow-up treatments. Henson must surrender any firearms and can’t contact Kelsey Henson.
A judge earlier this year issued a long-term protective order against Cody Henson after determining texts his wife received amounted to “mental harassment.”
Cody Henson and his lawyer didn’t respond to messages seeking comment Tuesday.
