A girl has been sent to jail for cyberbullying in an effort to warn others there will be a price to pay if this behavior online persists.
In Worcester Magistrates Court, England, an 18-year-old woman was allegedly sent to three months in a young offenders institute after being found guilty of posting death threats on Facebook, according to the Daily Mail.
It is considered to be the UK's first jail sentence for cyberbullying.
The girl accused allegedly wrote on her Facebook page that she would kill another young woman, the Daily Mail said.
The two had been at school together, where the defendant's bullying of the victim allegedly began.
According to the Mail's report, the defendant originally claimed the Facebook threat was written while drunk. However, police discovered that the threats remained on her Facebook page for 24 hours.
