New York Lawmaker Wants to Make Cyberbullying a Felony | News | The Advocate | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! |
New York State senator Jeffrey Klein plans to introduce a bill to
increase penalties for online bullying following the suicide of Jamey
Rodemeyer, who lived in the state.


“He said his bill would expand second-degree manslaughter to include ‘bullycide,’ or death by cyberbullying, when the perpetrator ‘intentionally or recklessly causes the victim of such offense to commit suicide.’


===> It would be a Class C felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison,” reports the Post. <===
