A woman is facing up to four years in jail for allegedly posting photographs and the mobile phone number of a teenage girl on a website and suggesting the girl wanted sex.
Elizabeth Thrasher, 40, posted the 17-year-old’s details in the Casual Encounters section of Craigslist, prosecutors said as the first case to be prosecuted under a new cyber-bullying law got under way.
The girl, who is the daughter of the girlfriend of Ms Thrasher’s ex-husband, was bombarded with calls, lewd messages and pornographic photos.
Prosecutors said that Ms Thrasher had been bickering on the social network website MySpace with her ex-husband’s girlfriend and the girlfriend’s daughter sent Ms Thrasher a MySpace message telling her to grow up. Full story.
