The Monroe County Legislature has passed a law that makes cyberbullying a crime, but some civil right's activists believe the new law goes too far.
Under the new law, harassment or intimidation of a minor electronically would be a misdemeanor punishable by up to $1,000 or one year in jail. The Genesee Valley chapter of the New York Civil Liberties Union says criminalizing cyberbullying won't prevent it. KaeLyn Rich is the organization's director. She adds the law is too broad and will infringe on First Amendment protected speech for adults and children.
