MySpace Case Sent to Jury, But Will Judge Have the Final Say?

25 11 2008

Well, that didn’t take too long. The jury trial involving Lori Drew — she of the fictitious MySpace page — was sent to the jury yesterday, after less than a week of testimony. A verdict could come any day now. Click here for the LA Times’s take on the final day of testimony.

To recap, briefly: the case centers on events leading up to the death of 13-year-old Megan Meier, an eighth-grader in suburban St. Louis. Meier hanged herself with a belt in her bedroom closet two years ago after she was suddenly dumped by someone she believed was a 16-year-old boy she’d met on the MySpace website. But the boy, Josh Evans, was a fictitious creation of Drew, the mother of one of Meier’s friends.
