Cyberbullying - examples
Megan Meier (13 years, USA, 2006) Megan
experienced virtual love for a few weeks with a
boy she had met online. After some time she
started to receive messages from the boy, which
were full of hatred, proclaiming how disgusting
she is and that the world would be much better
place without her. Consequences Megan hanged
During the investigation it was found out, that
the boy was actually impersonated by 50 years old
mother of Megans ex-friend, Lori Drew. By the
massages her mother wanted to take a revenge on
Megan for slandering her daughter a few month ago.
Child grooming explanation
  • Cybergrooming denotes a manipulative behavior of
    internet users which is supposed to raise
    confidence and prepare the victim for a meeting
    where sexual abuse, torture or manipulation
    (forcing to stealing or terrorism etc.) can take
  • Communication with unknown persons via the
    internet belongs to potentially hazardous
    behavior for a child can be exposed to various
  • Children communicating with unknown persons are
    often asked to send a photograph of their face
    (66,2 of respondents). 37,75 send such a
    photograph afterwards. 43,48 of the children
    were asked to meet in person and 22,89 of
    children agreed and met the unknown person in the
    real world.

Child grooming examples
Michael Wheeler (Great Britain) In 2003 he
confessed to 11 sexual attacks of under-aged
girls, 2 of them he even sexually abused. He was
convicted for that for 3 years of state prison.
Wheeler did use for his purposes public chat. In
one case he established communication with his
victim (that time the girls was just 11 years
old). He manipulated her, started to discuss
sensitive topics, and after her 13th birthday he
started sexually harassing her and afterwards he
did abuse her. If he would have abused her before
her 13th birthday he could have issued the threat
of life time sentence.
Child grooming examples
Peter Chapman (Great Britain) In the year 2010 he
was convicted for life-time, for raping and
murder.Ashleigh Hall, nursing student, had met
16 years old boy on Facebook. After some time
they planned a meeting in real world, after which
she didnt return back home. 32 years old Peter
Chapman confessed to her murder, he was already
convicted for sexual offences before.
He confessed for raping Ashleigh and afterwards
strangling her to death. After making this case
public, other girls started to contact police,
with whom Chapman did communicate before.
Cyberstalking explanation
  • Cyberstalking is abusing of internet, mobile
    phones or others informational and
    communicational technologies for stalking.
  • Stalking is a term commonly used to refer to
    unwanted, obsessive attention by individual
    (sometimes even groups of people) to others.
  • Stalking behaviors are related to harassment and
    intimidation. It can have different forms (e.g.
    sniffing, threatening, physical attacks and in
    rare cases even murder).
  • The victims feeling of fright is usually
    increasing. E.g. in CZ more then 10 of people
    have met stalking. 2 of cases of stalking ends
    up with death.

Stalking of famous people
Cyberstalking examples
Štefan Zámec (Czech Republic) Štefan Zámec is 50
years old entrepreneur, he was stalking and
harassing 20 years younger woman. He was vulgarly
insulting her, he did spy and chase her in the
car, bombarded her with SMS messages and in the
end he even threaten her with elimination of her
and her partner. During 7 months he contacted her
her at least 498 times. Consequences he was
convicted for blackmailing and violence against
the group of people for 2 years of state prison
with supervision.
Sexting - explanation
  • Another thing monitored in the research was
    respondents willingness to share or to send a
    photograph or a video record with sexual content
    via mobile phone or an internet service.
  • Specifically, it was a record of naked or
    partially naked body of the respondents. This
    activity is called sexting which falls within the
    group of hazardous activities associated with
    virtual communication as these materials can be
    used as a device for blackmail, humiliation or
    defacing of a victim.
  • Answers showed that 10,44 of children had sent a
    photograph or a video record with sexual content
    to another person at least once. 9,15 share this
    kind of depiction freely on the internet.
  • Another fact we were interested in was whether
    the children regarded this behavior dangerous
    that was confirmed by 71,18 of respondents.

Sexting - examples

break-up Jessicas ex-boyfriend published her
intimate pictures, which he got from her when
they were still dating. Since that she was
constantly mocked and humiliated by her
classmates and other peop-
le. Jessica did anonymously appear in the
television program to warn others from the danger
of sexting. Afterward the attacks on her person
escalated even more. Consequences Jessica
committed a suicide.
Sexting - examples
Phillip Alperta (USA, Florida)
Well-known example of sexting is the case of
underage Phillip Alperta. Even though he didnt
ask for them, his 16 years old girlfriend send
him pictures of herself, where she was naked.
After their breakup, Philip send-out those
pictures to his friends, to the parents of his
ex-girlfriend and also to other people (approx.
70 people).
Consequences He got suspended sentence for 5
years, for distribution of child pornography plus
until 43 years of his age, he will be placed on
the list of sexual aggressors (on that list can
be found sexual rapists, sexual harassment
deviants, etc.).
