Harassment charges against a woman for sending threatening emails to a Des Moines public school employee were dropped Friday.

In October, 58-year-old Carol Tiernan-Williams was charged with third-degree harassment.

The charges stemmed from emails that she had sent to Amanda Easton, an investigator with the school district’s human resources department.

The messages were about the investigation and eventual firing of former Lincoln football coach Tom Mihalovich.

Easton claimed the emails made her fear for her and her family.

A judge dropped those charges and the no contact order against Tiernan-Williams Friday morning.
