A Los Angeles judge has delayed the sentencing of Lori Drew, the Missouri woman who orchestrated an elaborate MySpace hoax directed at a 13-year-old neighbor who ended up committing suicide.
On Monday, U.S. District Judge George Wu rescheduled Lori Drew’s sentencing to July 2.
The judge wants more time to review the testimony from prosecution witnesses. He did not rule on a motion presented by the defense to dismiss Drew’s convictions on three misdemeanor counts of accessing computers without authorization.
As you may recall, Lori Drew humiliated Megan Meier by making up a pretend “boy crush” on MySpace and flirting with Megan.
She then had the fake boy then dump her and tell her that the world would be better off without her. She hanged herself a short time later in October 2006.
