Kevin Michael Purefield pleaded guilty in Multnomah County Circuit Court Wednesday to one count each of misdemeanor stalking and telephonic harassment. Purefield was repeatedly harassing victims’ families of the Aurora Colorado movie theatre shooting. Purfield is scheduled to be sentenced Friday to what likely will be a year of mental-health court, where he will have to check in weekly with a specialist who will help him with any needs, such as attending doctor’s appointments, taking medications and maintaining a place to live. Purfield also will be ordered not to phone, email, text or otherwise have any contact with the families of the 12 who died or the 58 who were injured during the July 2012 screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.” “We just want to stop the behavior and get him help,” said Kirsten Snowden, the deputy district attorney who heads Multnomah County’s misdemeanor trial unit.

Four of Tri Mets contracted cops, usually seen on the max hustling people for their fares were sent to bully, arrest, handcuff, and seize Lane’s computer and cell phone.
