ST. CHARLES, MO — Elizabeth Thrasher, 40, of St. Charles, pushed our camera away as she walked out of the St. Charles county jail Monday. She’s charged with a felony for allegedly posting false sexual information about a teenage girl online.
But is the new state law against cyber-bullying constitutional?
St. Charles teen Megan Meier killed herself in 2006 after being harassed and bullied online. In 2008 a new Missouri cyber-bullying law went into effect. That law’s being used to prosecute Thrasher. But there are arguments on both sides as to whether the new law is fatally flawed. Video report.
