Biggest Headlines of 2008: Lori Drew Indicted in MySpace Suicide Case


The Megan Meier MySpace case of 2008 was heartbreaking for the girl who was lost, and was also unique in that it challenged fairly new Internet conventions. When the 13-year-old Meier killed herself after being tormented by a group of people — chief among them, her friend's mother Lori Drew — enforcers were unsure that they'd be able to charge her with anything.

In May, Drew was indicted for her role, and finally, after claiming she never read MySpace's Terms of Use and could not be held accountable for them, last month she was found guilty of three misdemeanor counts — minor counts compared to the greater felony charge.
