MySpace Sued by 14 Year Old for Enabling Sexual Assault


MySpace.com was sued on Monday by a 14 year old girl who claims to have been sexually assaulted by another MySpace user, on grounds that the super popular social networking site does not offer the proper safety measures to protect its underage users, the Associated Press reports via HoustonChronicle.com.

The girl claims that 19-year-old Pete Solis falsely identified himself as a member of a local high school football team before she provided him with a phone number, according to the Chronicle. MySpace Sued by 14-Year-Old for Enabling Sexual Assault - Security Feed - Blog - CSO Magazine
