Maryland Delegate Wants to Make Cyberbullying Illegal




    Delegate Jon S. Cardin wants to make cyberbullying illegal in the state of Maryland.

    Cardin will hold a news conference Wednesday to discuss cyberbullying and the impact that digital harassment can have on Maryland children and families.

    The Baltimore County Democrat has already introduced legislation to outlaw the practice of cyberbullying. The bill prohibits individuals from using a computer to publicly threaten a child, post sexually explicit or private information about a child, or intentionally inflict emotional harm on a child.

    The news conference is scheduled take place at Lawyer's Mall in Annapolis at 11 a.m.
