'Bullycide’ bill would protect new Yorkers from cyberbullying
Albany — A bill introduced this week by Sen. David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) would make “bullycide” a felony if adopted.
The bill would expand second-degree manslaughter to include death by cyberbullying when a perpetrator intentionally or recklessly causes a victim to commit suicide.
===> It would be punishable by up to 15 years in prison. <===
