I am thrilled about the results of the trial. While Lori could have been convicted of more, I am happy she was convicted of anything at all. With a 3 year possible sentence awaiting her and up to $300,000 in fines, this verdict sent the right message. If you are an adult and torment and harass a child online you will face a jury of your peers.
Now, I hope that the US Attorney for the St Louis area of Missouri now re-examines this case and brings the action that needs to be brought - under the federal cyberstalking statute. To my knowledge, double jeopardy does not attach here. This case was a crime against MySpace. But now let's look at justice for Megan, in her name.
Megan...rest in peace.
