When is cyberbullying a crime?

When a person teases or consistently offends or intimidates another in person, it is known as bullying. The act of bullying often is seen as synonymous with the behavior of school-age children and can be considered as harmless. However, this is simply not the case. Bullying can be perpetrated by a person of any age, and it is very rarely harmless. It can also be a crime under many circumstances.

Is a hate crime a federal or state offense?

Most crimes in the U.S. are prosecuted on the state level under state laws. This includes hate crimes and each state has its own version of hate crime legislation. There are also federal hate crime laws, but unless the circumstances are extraordinary, federal officials usually defer to their state counterparts.
