A Harlan woman is facing multiple charges including intimidating a participant in a legal proceeding after allegedly threatening a woman and her minor daughter.

Devina C. Fields, 40, was arrested by Harlan County Sheriff’s Deputy Philip Ely on Tuesday.

According to the citation, Fields made threats to “whip” a woman and her 11-year-old daughter on June 22. The woman had contacted police earlier in the week, advising Fields was threatening her. Fields was arrested on an unrelated pending assault charge when police arrived in response to the woman’s call. Once Fields was released from jail, she made threats and harassed the woman, intending to cause the woman to refrain from pursuing charges against her.

Fields was charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process and third-degree terroristic threatening. She was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $7,500 full cash bond.
