The state charged Dane DeLarge with cyberstalking an ex-girlfriend based on allegedly making one hundred cell phone calls and sending one text message.
At the trial, the prosecution argued DeLarge used his cell phone to stalk and harass the victim. However, both the Court and the defense attacked the prosecutions use of the cyberstalking statute. The defense argued that cyberstalking was intended to cover harassing electronic communication, not multiple phone calls. Indeed, the Court agreed and even questioned the prosecution’s grasp of the cyberstalking law. Following the hearing, the trial court acquitted Mr. DeLarge of the charges.
