SMITHFIELD, R.I. — A teenage student at Smithfield High School has been charged with cyberstalking after creating a fake Facebook account to harass another student.

The 15-year-old girl created a fake account pretending to be a fellow student who was born missing part of her foot. The account was created under the name “Halfafoot” with the victim’s last name and birth date. Accompanying the profile was a picture of a bloody, severed foot.

After police figured out who was responsible for the posting, the affidavit states they went to the teen’s home where her father was “annoyed and rude,” referring the police to the phone number of a law office. Detectives confiscated three computers from the home instead.

Police really took this seriously and questioned 2 of the 26 “friends” listed on the fake account and were able to get a clearer picture of how the profile was created and why.

A female Smithfield High sophomore told the police that the account was created Nov. 6 by the 15-year-old and a male Burrillville High School student on her home computer while she was taking a shower, the affidavit shows. The teenager told the police that she told the two to take the page down, that it “was wrong.” They all then left for a Providence College basketball game.

They went on to explain that they wanted to remove the page before they left, but that the 15-year-old girl took the password with her and told them she did not want the page removed because she wanted to see the responses to the friend requests she had sent.

The student is now facing charges of cyberstalking and using false information. If found guilty, and since it is a first offense, she’s looking at a misdemeanor charge facing a $500 fine and one year in prison, or both.

Hey, don’t get me wrong, I don’t condone this type of crap. But man, is the girl with the partial foot the police chief’s daughter or something? That’s one hell of a response over a fake Facebook account.
