Springs teen ordered to apologize in Facebook bullying case
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado Springs teenager who plead guilty to misdemeanor harassment for bullying fellow teens on Facebook has been ordered to write an apology letter and a 3-page paper on cyber bullying.
Kyle John Pate, 18, agreed to the sentence Tuesday, reported the Colorado Springs Gazette.
The deal also includes 40 hours of community service. If he completes it all, the misdemeanor charge will be lifted from Pate’s record.
Authorities said Pate, and another 18-year-old, were responsible for creating a Facebook page called “Falcon Problems.”
El Paso County sheriff’s deputies determined the page had threatening language and investigated the pair.
