Unbelievable – A Mother Is Charged With Cyberbullying Her Own Daughter


The Internet is a story of two tales.

The web includes information that enriches the lives of billions of people, but at the same time is a portal of perverse and criminal activities.

In addition, many have stopped communicating with others in person, or even via a phone call, but have instead chosen to solely chat with others on social media platforms, etc.

In a recent extreme example of the breakdown of communication between family members, a Michigan woman was recently arrested after federal officials claimed that she was the cyber bully who engaged in persistent harassment of her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend for nearly 18 months.

Kendra Gail Licari, 42, of Mount Pleasant, Michigan, about an hour north of Lansing, has a teenage daughter who attends school in Beal City, about 15 minutes away.

Reports claim that at some time in “early” 2021, Licari’s daughter and her then-boyfriend began receiving harassing messages online. Beal City school officials were made aware of the harassment in December of that year and initiated an investigation into the source. Both Licari and the mother of her daughter’s boyfriend cooperated in the investigation.

By the end of April or beginning of May, federal investigators had alerted William Chilman, the Beal City schools superintendent, that they had zeroed in on Licari as a possible suspect in the case after they allegedly tied her IP addresses to some of the messages.

On Monday, Licari was arrested and charged with two counts of stalking a minor and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime. She was also assessed one count of obstruction of justice because she allegedly attempted to pin the harassment on one of her daughter’s peers. Licari was released on $5,000 bond.

David Barberi, an Isabella County prosecutor, told the media that law enforcement had compiled nearly 350 pages of harassing text and social media messages sent to the two victims, who allegedly received up to 12 such harassing messages a day.

Barberi claimed that Licari would often disguise herself online by using slang and abbreviations frequently used by members of younger generations. The Macomb Daily reports that she would also make the messages appear as though they had come from out of town whenever “kids the age of the two traveled,” but it is unclear whether the targeted teens were likewise out of town at the time.

Though police say that Licari eventually made a full confession, police still do not have a motive for the crime. Licari had been a girls’ basketball coach for Beal City schools until at least last December, but she had been replaced at the end of the season.

The exact nature of the harassment is also unclear. Several outlets have characterized it as “catfishing” — the act of adopting a false persona online to fool others, often for romantic or sexual purposes — but prosecutors have released few details regarding the content.

Barberi described the messages as “demeaning, demoralizing, and just mean.”

Licari is scheduled to appear in court again on December 20 and actually faces up to 10 years for the computer crime charge and five years a piece for the stalking and obstruction allegations if convicted.

For some reason, the punishment for criminal activity is more severe if done online, than in person.

The first amendment is thrown out the window when someone says things to others online that are considered hateful or bullying.

This is why I believe technology which led to the industrialized revolution, will eventually be the downfall of nations, leading to a global new world order.
