Lori Drew in cyber-bullying case requests Internet access for work

Lori Drew, accused of involvement in cyber-bullying linked to the 2006 death of a teenager in Dardenne Prairie, wants permission to go back online, her lawyer said in a court filing. Attorney H. Dean Steward wrote that Drew got a recent offer of a job that would require her to use the Internet. The request is limited to work-related access.

Drew has been banned from the Internet since June 16, 2008, when she pleaded not guilty of a federal conspiracy charge and three counts of illegally accessing a protected computer.

A jury in Los Angeles deadlocked on the conspiracy charge and found Drew guilty of three misdemeanors. On July 2, U.S. District Judge George H. Wu announced that he would overrule the jury and acquit Drew, but specified that his decision would not be final until filed in writing. That hasn’t happened yet.

It leaves Drew, now 50, who has moved from Missouri to an undisclosed state, subject to the pre-trial bail conditions, Steward said. Full story.
