Women as Perpetrators

In February of 2008, a 50-year-old Oregon tax attorney was arrested and charged with trying to frame her ex-boyfriend by sending explicit pictures of him to his boss. What we find interesting about this case—in addition to the fact that a woman was doing the cyber stalking—was the elaborate methods she used to try and cover her trail, including the use of prepaid cell phones to make harassing phone calls and phony email accounts, as well as regular mail to stalk and harass. This was also the first case to invoke Washington State's cyber stalking law from 2004, the state where the offense was alleged to have occurred.
