Authorities say the Northern California woman faces 15 counts for allegedly harassing Jenner through hundreds of “disturbing” emails and “anonymous” text messages. Bankston is also accused of hacking into Jenner’s iCloud account and impersonating her through text messages that were sent to family members — including to Caitlyn Jenner and one of her daughters that was under the age of 18 at the time.

The report notes that the woman also allegedly hacked Jenner’s Instagram account posting a variety of negative and disparaging remarks towards blacks and others.

The Bay Area woman is also accused of impersonating Jenner and calling police to get them to respond to a false emergency at her home, according to another report.

Bankston was in federal court on Friday and released on $20,000 bond. She will be back in court on August 22, and must make no contact with the reality TV star matriarch.
