image for Pa. woman created ‘deepfake’ videos to force rivals off daughter’s cheerleading squad: police

Raffaela Spone, of Chalfont, was charged with two misdemeanors, Hilltown Township Police officers said.

An investigation last year led officers to discover that Spone had sent harassing text messages directly to the teenagers as well, police said.

As the investigation continued, more teenagers came forward, who were all part of a traveling cheerleading group — Victory Vipers — based in the Doylestown area.

Raffeala Spone, 50, was arrested for harassing teenager cheerleaders, who she saw as rivals to her daughter.

“Spone last year created the doctored images of at least three members,” according to the affidavit.

Hilltown police were contacted by one of the teenager’s parents in July, and then two more families came forward with a similar account.
