Sandra Bachman, 58, of Batavia, Ohio, has been charged with one count of false report or threat of terrorism, one count of ethnic intimidation and two counts of malicious use of telecommunications services. She is accused of making threats to Cynthia A. Johnson, 63, of Detroit, Michigan, USA and Sarah Anthony, 38, of Lansing, Michigan.
In May 2021, Bachman allegedly left a voicemail for Anthony. The Batavia resident allegedly said, “Hey um, (you) need to cancel that bill against the vets, you little traitor, and, um, you won’t see the bullet coming, let me tell you that.”
“So, stop this s–t and you’re fired,” Bachman allegedly continued. “We’ll be coming to Michigan soon to remove you from your post.”
In June 2021, Bachman allegedly left a voicemail for Johnson. The Batavia resident allegedly said, “Well, baby doll, n—a lip b—h, monkey, we are going to get you.”
“You will die,” Bachman allegedly told Johnson. “You are one of the worst offenders. We actually have a tier too, in like points for how much you are worth once we kill you.”
“You’re going to die and I’m happy about it,” Bachman allegedly continued. “The whole world will be rejoicing. Just know that. Sleep well.”
Bachman will be arraigned at 8:15 a.m. on March 31, 2022. She is required to appear in-person before the court.
