Texas Penal Code
  • An offense under subsection
  • (b) is a Class A misdemeanor which is a fine not to exceed 4,000, jail time not to exceed one year or both (Spencer).
  • Texas seems to have the stricter Cyberharassment law. All of the states also have cyberbullying laws, but based on my research in most states cyberbullying is counted or placed in the responsibility of the school system. For example in Virginia, the Board of Education sets the guidelines and develops policies for the student code of conduct

Cyberbullying law
  • In most states Cyberbullying laws are only prevalent in the school board system.
  • Cyberbullying and cyberharassment should be integrated for a stricter law.
for texas
For Texas
  • (a) A person commits an offense if the person uses a name or identity of another person to create a web page or to post one or more messages on a social networking site:
  • Without receiving the other person’s permission; and
  • With the intention to harm, defraud, intimidate or threaten a person.
  • b) A person commits an offense if the person sends anything electronic such as mail, instant message, text message, or any communication that makes reference to a name, address, phone number, or anything that belongs to another person:

1) Without receiving the other person’s permission

2) With the intention to cause the recipient of the communication to believe that the other person authorized or transmitted the message; and

3) With the intent to harm or defraud any person.

C) A person commits an offense with the intent of subsections (a) and (b) but the person receiving the harassments commits self inflicted bodily injury which includes suicide.


(1) An offense under subsection (a) for ages 10-13 is a class C and twenty hours community service, for ages 13-17 a class C misdemeanor and 17+ a third degree felony if the person’s intention is to solicit the response of emergency personnel.

  • An offense under subsection (b) for ages 10-13 40 hours community service, for ages 13-17 a Class C misdemeanor and 17+ Class A misdemeanor.
  • And an offense under subsection (C) results in a Class A misdemeanor for ages 10-13. For ages 13+ a Second degree felony.
  • If the states cracked down on cyberbullying as a whole by making it a law not just in the school system, there would possibly be less cyberbullying
