Mom busted for "stealing" son's Facebook account

NeoBeans (591740) writes "An Arkansas teen has filed a harassment complaint against his mother for getting in to his Facebook account and posting stories on his wall and engaging in communication with him and his friends which included embarrassing stories about the teen. What makes this story interesting is not the complaint itself, but how the teen characterizes his mother's actions...

In his handwritten complaint to prosecutors, Lane New asked that his mother have no contact with him and wrote, "Denise first hacked my Facebook and changed my password. She also changed the password to my e-mail so I could not change it. She posted things that involve slander and personal facts about my life." Denise New acknowledged changing both passwords to keep her son from getting access to his Facebook page. She denied hacking into the account.

However, it appears no real "hacking" was involved...

"He left it logged in on my computer," she said. "It's not like I stole his laptop."

Is this a case of a careless user getting what they deserve because they remained logged in on a machine others had access to, or is this a case of harassment?"
