A federal judge in Los Angeles is mulling a defense request to dismiss the conviction of a Missouri woman involved in a MySpace hoax on a 13-year-old girl who committed suicide.
U.S. District Court Judge George Wu did not immediately rule after oral arguments yesterday and didn't indicate when he would rule. He did set an April 30th sentencing date for Lori Drew, who was not present.
Drew was found guilty in November of three misdemeanor counts of accessing computers without authorization.
The case centered around the suicide of Megan Meier. Her mother, Tina Meier, said it would be a huge disservice to jurors and horrendous for all parties involved to dismiss the conviction.
She says she hopes the judge makes the right decision.
