Postings on a web site are a nightmare for a New Castle woman


NEW CASTLE, Pennsylvania - A web site offering oral sex, adult toys, phone fantasies and other adult services was created in Amy Kreitzer's maiden name last January.

The New Castle woman said her ex-husband, Michael DeMatteo, of New Castle, created the site on a computer at his job in East Palestine last year.

"It's been hurtful, embarrassing, I've been humiliated," Kreitzer said.

The unimaginable humiliation and harassment was a nightmare not only for Kreitzer, but her new husband Doug Kreitzer, and their children.

Drunken men even showed up at their home after midnight, wanting adult toys and parties.

"We've had strangers knocking at the door wanting to know what our business hours were and exactly what products were offered," Kreitzer said. "I've been in the backyard playing with the kids, and we've had guys drive by yelling out vulgarity, and making comments in front of my kids."

Doug Kreitzer said he feared for the safety of his wife and children. "When you go online and you see your name and your address and all of your personal details there, it's scary. It feels like they just took something out of you," Doug Kreitzer said.

Shenango Township police arrested and charged Kreitzer's ex-husband, Michael DeMatteo, with five crimes Tuesday night, including, unlawful use of a computer, criminal use of a communication facility, harassment and other crimes.

DeMatteo was arraigned before District Judge David Rishel. He was held in the Lawrence County Jail on $5,000 bond and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on April 19th in Lawrence County Central Court.

As for the web site, the online service directory initially refused to remove the site saying she did not create it but eventually took the site down when police got involved with search warrants. The online directory service also apologized to Amy Kreitzer for what she went through.

"I'm hoping to God that this puts an end to him harassing me," Amy Kreitzler said.
