Last summer, Spone allegedly created doctored photos and videos of at least three teenage members of the Victory Vipers, a competitive cheerleading squad based in Doylestown.

At least two others on the cheerleading team came forward throughout the course of the investigation conducted by Hilltown police. Investigators determined the photos and videos were "deep fakes" created by using photos from the girls' social media profiles and overlaying them with different images to make them look authentic. Police traced the phone s back to a website specializing in selling phone s to telemarketers, the Inquirer reported.
Investigators subpoenaed information on the IP address, allowing them to track the threatening messages to Spone's home. Police said investigators found evidence on her cell phone connecting her with the s used to harass the girls. Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub told the Washington Post that Spone was not charged with a more serious felony offense because the doctored photos included skin tone bars to create a "Barbie doll-like effect" to make the girls appear nude, but "with no obvious genitalia.
