Cyberbullying is a real crime and county prosecutors in western Oregon take it seriously. It is particularly prosecuted against teenagers who fall out of a personal relationship and turn to using social media to hurt their former boyfriends or girlfriends. In today’s sensitive legal environment, any unwanted attention or contact can be charged as harassment.
If you or your minor-aged child is under investigation or has already been charged with cyberbullying, call the criminal defense law office of Steven J. Sherlag, P.C., in Portland. I have more than 20 years of experience representing individuals charged with criminal offenses using computers, devices, websites, chat rooms and social media.
Every Case Is Unique Because The Laws Are In Flux
Cyberbullying laws are constantly changing. I keep up with the laws as prosecutors, defense attorneys and judges are still trying to figure out the extent of freedom of speech and when the lines have been crossed. Call me if you have been charged with cyberbullying or a similar domestic violence offense such as telephone harassment, stalking or cyber-stalking or harassment using social media.
