ESTERO, Fla. (CBS/AP) Two teenage Florida girls accused of posting fake nude photographs of a classmate on Facebook have been charged under the state's cyberbullying law.
The Naples Daily News reports that the 16 and 15-year-old high school students were charged Wednesday after an extensive investigation regarding two obscene Facebook accounts created in April.
The accounts included a photo of the victim's head affixed to a "nude prepubescent girl's body," according to the probable cause statement obtained by The Smoking Gun.
One of the suspects admitted to authorities that she created the two pages "as a joke because she thought it would be funny," reports The Smoking Gun. Authorities say the victim was ridiculed by classmates after the pages became active.
Both accused girls face a felony charge of aggravated stalking under a 2008 law passed after a student suicide was blamed on bullying. The teens have been ordered to serve 21 days of home confinement and will be arraigned on the charges February 8.
