Bill in Texas Legislature, David’s Law, aims to criminalize cyberbullying

Recommended Posts

On Tuesday afternoon the House Public Education Committee heard a bill that has been called David’s Law, a bill named for David Molak, a 16-year-old who committed suicide in January 2016 after being cyberbullied. Molak, a student at Alamo Heights High School in San Antonio, was ridiculed on various social platforms by his peers. He transferred schools, but the bullying followed him. Molak’s parents, Matt and Maureen, helped state Rep. Ina Minjarez, D-San Antonio, and Sen. Jose Menendez, D-San Antonio, craft matching pieces of legislation that would change elements of the education, civil and penal code to create consequences for cyberbullying.
