The Missouri Legislature has passed a law making cyber harassment illegal. The legislation now goes to the governor for his approval. The measure is a response to the case of Megan Meier, the thirteen year old who committed suicide over emails she received from "Josh Evans," an imaginary boyfriend alleged to have been created by a neighbor and her employee. The neighbor, Lori Drew, has now been indicted by a federal grand jury in California. Here's a link to the bill summary.
