That's exactly what I thought too...except she wasn't found guilty of using MySpace to inflict IIED, they rejected that charge. She was only found guilty of "accessing a computer without authorization". Obviously if there was no suicide, she would not have been charged. However, this is the criminal side of this case. I'm sure there will be a civil suit and the IIED will be the main issue, but IIED was rejected in the criminal case so I don't really feel like she should potentially be put in jail for "accessing a computer without authorization" i.e. creating a false profile.
I agree she should be punished...punished for harassing a girl into killing herself. Unfortunately, there weren't any laws against cyber bullying when this happened (there are now). So I kind of feel like the only punishment she should get is through a civil suit, and we shouldn't be stretching an anti-hacking law to cover this case just because of the outrage over what happened.
