Update 2: On Myspace Hoax

HandcuffsToday, Lori Drew entered a non-guilty plea before a federal grand-jury in Los Angeles. Drew has finally been charged with something in a MySpace scam. Drew masterminded a scheme to humiliate 13-year old Megan Meier. Apparently, Drew was seeking revenge because Megan had terminated her friendship with Drew’s daughter. As a result of this scam Megan committed suicide.

Drew and Megan both lived in a suburb of St. Louis. However, previously neither local authorities or the FBI had been able to find any way to bring charges against her. It seems that an adult impersonating a teen to torture another teen does not violate any laws other than the Golden Rule.

Last month, Drew was charged in California for violating the MySpace terms of service. Drew’s trial is scheduled for July 26 and could face up to 20 years in prison for her crime. Drew has been charged with conspiracy and accessing a protected computer to obtain information. This is a statue that has previously been used to against individuals who have hacked into government computers. It is a long shot but finally something is being done to stop a predator.

Drew has loudly complained that she and her family are being unfairly persecuted. Also, she has claims that she did nothing wrong. If Drew did nothing wrong why did she delete the account shortly after Megan’s death and tell another teen involved in the plot to keep her mouth shut. Drew called the other teen while emergency personnel were at the Meier home. Drew’s own actions indicate that she is aware her actions are wrong. It is time that she be held accountable.

  1. I am in absolute agreement with you, Dee. I do, however, suspect that her defense attorney will convince a jury that she is being wrongfully prosecuted, given that people use false names on the internet all the time, and since she has not been charged with anything directly related to the child’s suicide.

  2. I agree, it is about time she’s held accountable. It irritates me so bad when people are so hypocritical. Like you pointed out: She loudly is protesting that she did nothing wrong, yet she deleted her account so quickly and told the other teen involved to keep their mouth shut.

    DUH.

    Question: What punishment is being given to the other teen involved?

  3. There were several teens involved. The 17 or 18 yr old employee and several younger teens. The older teen needs some form of punishment but not jail time. The younger teens including Drew’s daughter need to have sensitive training. Of course I think Drew should loose custody of her children.

  4. If I am correct, there were at least four people involved in this. Maybe more. I can imagine all the people involved in this hoax will pay a really steep price. Lori Drew is the most hated person along side with Osama bin Laden/September 11 Terrorists, Kim Jong-Il, Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Fred Phelps. As for her daughter will have no friends, same goes with the other teen involved in the hoax. Ashley Grills attempted suicide after Megan died. Their lives and reputations are in ruins.

  5. Dee,

    I never meant to put Lori Drew at the same level as terrorists and genocidal maniacs. Tell the truth she kinda should be compared with Wanda Holloway and I remember the case well. To clarify what I said, she is despised along side with terrorists and dictators. To compare Lori Drew with 9/11 Terrorists or Joseph Stalin would trivialize the large number of death and suffering of those people, survivors, and family members. Also, 9/11 is a very touchy in nature even though it happened 7 years ago. As for Fred Phelps, he is just an old psychopath addicted to hate, who never made peace. Lori Drew kinda looks like Phelps though. As for why I mentioned Phelps and his wackos because they are billed as America’s Most Hated Family. It is from BBC a documentary title about them. Everyone hates WBC, like Lori Drew and her cohorts.

  6. Arctic Chicken,

    Everyone hates WBC, like Lori Drew and her cohorts.
    Be careful about generalizations. While many dislike or despise both Drew & WBC I think hate is too strong a word. Also, many don’t just don’t care.
