Social media harassment ends in charges

Posted January 21, 2014

A 19-year-old New Tecumseth male faces new charges after breaching court orders barring communications between himself and two youth aged 12 and 14.

Nottawasaga OPP reported this morning that they "received a complaint about threats being posted on social media" yesterday.

"Police determined through the course of the investigation that the male was on a recognizance from the court with conditions not to communicate with the victim for a previous incident," according to police.

The male is charged with Fail to Comply with a Recognizance, Uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and Uttering threats to damage or injure animal. He was scheduled to appear in bail court this morning in Barrie to answer to these charges.

"The OPP want the public to know that while the Internet and new communications technologies have true positive value for us as a society, they also have a down side. These new communications technologies are allowing old crimes to be committed in new ways and they are fostering the development of new crimes."
