New laws will go in effect tomorrow October 1, 2013 in the state of Maryland. Some of these laws include talking on your cellular devices, not wearing a seat belt, guns, lawns, workplace pregnancy and the new Grace Law to fight against cyber-bullying.
A cyberbullying law, also known as “Grace’s Law,” makes it a criminal offense to use an interactive computer service, like Twitter or Facebook, to cause “serious emotional distress on a minor” or causes the minor to fear for his or her life or physical safety.
Those found guilty of the misdemeanor offense face up to a year in prison in addition to a possible $500 fine.
The law is named after Grace McComas, a 15-year-old from Woodbine, Md., who committed suicide in 2012 after being bullied on Twitter.
