A 16-year-old Arkansas boy is suing his mother, accusing her of slandering him on his facebook page. The teen claims his mother posted slanderous remarks about him on the site.
His mom, Denise New said she was just keeping an eye on her son’s online activity. In court documents, he alleges she hacked into his account, changed his password and posted things about his personal life.
“I read things on his facebook about how he had gone to hot springs one night and was driving 95 miles per hour home because he was upset with a girl and it was his friend that called me and told me about all this. That prompted me to even actually start really going through his facebook to see what was going on,” New said.
Her son lives with his grandmother, who has custodial rights of him. However, New maintains she’d had a great relationship with him despite their living arrangements.
New said she believes she has the legal right to monitor her son’s activities online and that plans to fight the charges. Prosecutor Todd Turner declined to comment, citing the boy’s age.
