An estimated 40% of internet users have been harassed online at one point or another. Online bullying, better known as cyberbullying, has become very prominent in today’s day and age forcing the Senate to take action and create bills to be passed to protect against this. On May 15th, Florida Senate passed a bill filed under SB 538, which will protect internet users from sexual cyberharassment. This law will “Prohibit a person from willfully and maliciously sexually cyber-harassing another person; authorizing a law enforcement officer to arrest, without a warrant, any person that he or she has probable cause to believe has committed sexual cyberharassment”. The Sexual Cyberharassment law will go into effect on October 1, 2015. To learn more about this law click here.
