Two Teens Arrested for Creating Fake Facebook Profile and Tormenting Student
Two Florida high school students were arrested for creating a fake Facebook account and using it to bully another student.
Sixteen-year-old Taylor Wynn and McKenzie Barker, 15, each face a charge of aggravated stalking of a minor younger than 16. The Estero High School students were also dished a 21-day home detention.
The victim's name was not released, but the Facebook page was created to look like she was the owner. The fake profile had 181 friends, and showed the victim's head on a nude girl's body and other phony sexually implicit photos.
Deputy Allen Thierer, a school resource officer, says the victim was "subjected to numerous incidents of teasing and ridicule for an ongoing period of time as a result" of the page.
Taylor made the page as a joke and thought it would be funny, because "nobody liked her." The teen also admitted that said she and the victim were "friends at one time but they do not like each other now."
Sophomore Monica Wells says it best, "That's stupid to harass someone...cyber bullying is pathetic."
