A Derry Township woman has been charged for the second time in recent weeks with leaving threatening messages for Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck, filling his voice mail with obscene messages and sending him lewd caricatures, police said on Friday.

Michele Levendosky, 44, of Bradenville is being held in the Westmoreland County jail on $20,000 bail on charges of multiple counts of harassment. She was released last week on $5,000 bond on similar charges.

Levendosky allegedly inundated Peck's office with calls and voice mails between March 3 and 8, police said. Some of her voice messages lasted for as long as five minutes, according to the charges. Most of the calls were laced with profanity.

She was outraged that detectives called her employer to trace the phone calls, according to court records.

Despite warning her to stop the threats and harassment, Westmoreland County Detective Paul Burkey said, the phone calls continued to the point that no one else could leave messages with other staffers in the office.

Burkey said they are unsure exactly why she is upset with Peck. There is a reference in the charges to a vehicle accident and claims of her family's being “victimized.”
