Husband and wife face charges of alleged victim intimidation

A Warren man and his wife stand accused of intimidation of a victim.

Christian S. Iverson, 37, and Camille E. Iverson, 34, both of Garland, each face a felony intimidation charge.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, the Iversons attempted to coerce a man who is allegedly a victim in a previous case involving Christian Iverson, who is awaiting trial.

In January, that case was continued to the next trial term.

In that case, Iverson faces 47 criminal counts, including aggravated assault, burglary, stalking, flight to avoid apprehension, and DUI.

“The defendant Christian Iverson once threatened (the victim’s) life with a weapon, burglarized (his) residence, and rammed his vehicle into a parked vehicle in (his) driveway,” according to the affidavit of probable cause. “The defendant Camille Iverson was located in (the victim’s) residence at the time of this previous incident.”

Regarding the current case, “Camille Iverson and Christian Iverson wrote a letter and then contacted (the victim) via Camille Iverson’s phone,” according to the affidavit.

They told him to sign the letter, then deliver it to Iverson’s attorney, according to the affidavit.

“When (the victim) was provided the letter, he observed the letter was written as if he had written the letter himself,” police said in the affidavit. “He also observed in the letter, it states that (the victim) never heard Christian Iverson say he was going to kill him. It also states that law enforcement forced (the victim) into making a false statement about Christian Iverson.”

The victim “stated these were all lies, and he in fact was threatened (by Iverson) and he was not forced into making a statement (by police),” police said in the affidavit. He “stated he felt pressured and coerced into signing the letter in fear of what Iverson would do to him if he refused.”

Police said the victim also received an offer that the Iversons would work for him for free if he signed the letter.
