BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man has pleaded guilty to two counts of federal cyberstalking charges.

AL.com reports that 32-year-old Stephen Parks Lewis' Monday plea agreement detailed how he threatened and harassed his ex-girlfriend, and also another woman and her minor-age daughter.

The plea says Lewis used text messages, emails and voicemails to threaten, harass and intimidate his ex-girlfriend for at least 10 months in 2017. His threats referenced the Las Vegas shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds more, as well as promises that his harassment would "continue forever."

Lewis threatened the second woman and her daughter through Facebook and other mediums in the hopes of finding his ex-girlfriend.

He will be sentenced May 30. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mohammad Khatib is prosecuting the case.

It's unclear if Lewis has an attorney.
