A black student at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania illegally accessed another student’s e-mail account to send racist and threatening messages to about 20 other black students, university police said.

Douglas A. Spadey, 18, of Philadelphia, was arraigned yesterday on charges of unlawful use of a computer, harassment by communication and terroristic threats, Cpl. Robert Burns said.

The messages were sent Monday and Mr. Spadey admitted sending them, Cpl. Burns said.


“Acts of this nature will not be tolerated at Edinboro University,” President Frank Pogue said in a statement.

Mr. Spadey was in Erie County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bond, Cpl. Burns said.
