Criminal Justice Case Studies: Juvenile Delinquency and Justice

Week 2

A high school freshman creates a fake social media account for the purpose of tricking

another student. The fake account is used to show romantic interest in the targeted

teen, and many deceptive techniques are used to make the targeted teen think that the

fake account actually belongs to a real person. The holder of the fake account

eventually reveals the trick, posting screenshots on a popular social media platform of

embarrassing texts and admissions by the targeted teen. A few days later, the targeted

teen waits for the cyberbully outside of school and physically attacks the cyberbully,

sending the cyberbully to the hospital. The parents of the cyberbully want to press

charges against the targeted teen.
