Cyberstalking: a new wrinkle; a new crime! 

NEW YORK - January 25, 2010 -  This week, I'm talking about cyberstalking, a type of stalking crime in which the stalker sends threatening or ominous messages using email, instant messaging, postings on a website or discussion group or on a social media site to harasses the victim.  This is a physically and emotionally draining crime and one that's punishable by law.
First up, you'll meet Amy Edelstein, a rape crisis program coordinator from New York City, who is both a stalking and cyberstalking victim with a very unusual twist to her story and really great information about what it's like going to court with these cases. 
Then I'll be speaking with Timothy Dimoff, President of SACS Consulting & Investigative Services based in Akron, OH (www.sacsconsulting.com), who's a specialist in the prevention of cyberstalking on social media sites.  If you're on Facebook, Twitter and any number of other popular sites (or you're planning to be), you won't want to miss this information.

And, of course, stay tuned for great safety tips and helpful resources.

It'd be a crime not to listen!

Here's my story...

So often these people think they are above being held responsible or accountable for their actions. They need to be put in their place publicly every time.

Thank you for posting your article.
