Cyberbullying

The case in which Dharun Ravi served 10 years in prison has specifically brought up questions about whether the way that these criminals are being fairly prosecuted. Also in the case of Emily Bazelon who had received a 30 day sentence along with a three year probation, a fine, and community service.

But in others related to this it becomes more extreme as in stalking which are viewed as felonies and serious crimes.
