Cyber Harassment and Cyberstalking
Cyber harassment and cyberstalking are committed by individuals who use the guise of anonymity that the internet provides to commit acts that would be considered illegal in the real world. Since the internet is still a relatively recent phenomenon, legislators are struggling to find ways to address cybercrimes, though many states, including Georgia, have begun enacting laws specifically targeting such behavior.
Cyberstalking involves the use of electronic communications, such as email or text messaging, to contact or follow another person without his/her consent for malicious purposes. Law enforcement treats cyberstalking quite seriously since it often precedes acts of violence in the physical world. The State of Georgia recognizes cyberstalking as a crime in section 16-5-90 of the Georgia Code.
Cyber harassment involves the use of electronic communications to harass the victim for the purpose of embarrassing and humiliating the victim. This can be done through text message, instant messages, social media posts, and even by sharing unflattering information or photos on public sites. While this does not pose any credible threat to the physical health of the victim, it may cause severe mental and emotional trauma. Despite this, only a handful of states have begun introducing cyber harassment legislation.
