LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin woman is choosing to take a probation sentence after pleading guilty Wednesday to posing as someone else and sending threatening text messages to herself.

Barbara Mott Bordelon, 52, chose a 10-year probated sentence instead of a two-year prison sentence.

According to a previous report, Bordelon and a man reported on July 9 that they received harassing phone calls and threatening text messages from a pre-paid cellphone purchased under the name of another woman. The threatening messages continued throughout the investigations and stated that friends of the woman would attack the two if they did not tell Lufkin Police to stop the investigation into the harassment.

Police arrested Bordelon in July after the investigation revealed she had used the name of the woman to purchase the phone and make the messages.

After she was booked into jail, Bordelon said she fabricated the messages and story of harassment but did not have a reason for doing so, according to the report.
