Arkansas boy sues mother for harassment over Facebook

Topics: Facebook, Teenagers, Business,

A 16-year-old Arkansas boy is suing his mother, accusing her of slandering him on his Facebook page.

Denise New of Arkadelphia is charged with harassment and her son — whose name has not been released — is asking that his mother be prohibited from contacting him.

Authorities say the boy lives with his grandmother, who has custodial rights.

Denise New says she believes she has the legal right to monitor her son’s activities online and that plans to fight the charges.

Prosecutor Todd Turner declined to comment, citing the boy’s age.
