Cyberbullying

Minnesota Cyberbullying Lawyers

Bullying has long been a concern for schools and students. With the sharp increase in online community and social media participation, however, intimidation has become more severe. Students and even parents are using these vehicles to bully and harass other children.

Just as social media enables real situations of bullying and intimidation, it also allows messages, photos and posts to be misunderstood, leading to false accusations of cyberbullying.

At Villaume & Schiek, P.A., of Bloomington, Minnesota, we are equipped to defend the rights of those who have been accused of online bullying or electronic harassment. This includes all individuals suspected of using an electronic device or social media platform to harass, such as accusations of Facebook bullying or Twitter bullying.

Our lawyers will closely investigate the details of the case, determining what actually occurred. In some cases, another individual accessed the accused student or parent’s profile, phone or computer, posting intimidating messages or statuses. We sort through the technical records and IP addresses involved to pinpoint how the intimidation occurred.

In some situations, issues of sexting or stalking influence the case. This may include an individual taking pictures of another and posting them on social media. As the images are distributed over Facebook or Twitter, the charges grow in gravity. It is important that you have knowledgeable legal representation that is equipped to handle these matters.
