Family Receives Life in Prison for First-Ever Cyberstalking Conviction
Newsweek, Lauren Walker, 2/26/16 AT 1:41 PM EST
In a national first, defendants in Delaware have been convicted under the federal “cyberstalking resulting in death” statute, marking a shifting attitude about the real-world threat posed by cyber-intimidation.
Three family members—former optometrist David T. Matusiewicz; his mother, Lenore Matusiewicz; and his sister, Amy Gonzalez—were sentenced to life in prison last week for the 2013 murder of David’s ex-wife and her friend at a Delaware courthouse. The three family members’ convictions, which include conspiracy, interstate stalking resulting in death and cyberstalking resulting in death, followed a five-week jury trial this past summer. . . .
