High School Senior Expelled for Attacking English Teacher on Internet Forum

Christopher Latour, a senior at Southbridge High School, has been expelled for cyber bullying his teacher. He admits he tried to play a prank but says he’s not responsible for everything that followed. “I made the mistake of posting the code, but it wasn’t close to my intention to have what happened, happen,” he says.

The incident began in September when the senior went on a popular Internet message board and posted the password that gave anyone access to the web portal run by his English teacher. “It was supposed to be a senior prank where kids would go in and post funny photos,” says Latour. People didn’t just use the information to post funny photos, however. They instead lashed out against the female teacher with a barrage of vulgar, sexually derisive insults, sending the newlywed to psychological counseling.

Police traced the comments to mostly overseas IP addresses and none to Chris. But because he provided the password, he was held accountable for the cyber bullying of his English teacher. Following a 10 day suspension, he was expelled from school.
