Two girls, ages 12 and 13, were arrested on a felony charge after creating a fake Facebook page impersonating a 12-year-old classmate. They used the page to send threatening messages. The girls, students at a middle school in Granbury, Texas, were detained on July 16 and charged with online impersonation, a third-degree felony. Since Texas law shields juvenile court records, the exact nature of the Facebook page and messages sent are unknown.
“The juveniles were using the fake Facebook page to make threats towards other students and cultivated a bad reputation for the victim,” according to a Hood County Sheriff’s Department statement, which continues, saying that the girls “caused the victim to endure threats from other students” and be “rejected by her peers.”
