Should Justin Bieber fans be jailed for Tweeting death threats to his girlfriend to Selena Gomez? Former prosecutor Robin Sax to E!: ‘We’re talking about several tweets that are unspecific and pretty much incomprehensible. This matter is a federal one. The threats were delivered over the Internet,
..which means federal jurisdiction. If the bullying continues, or worsens, or grows more frequent or specific, then Gomez could file a police report and get the ball rolling on an FBI investigation.’ The offending Tweeter could end up facing a felony conviction, with jail time resulting: ‘I have seen these types of cases,
..but usually tweets are accompanied with overt actions. In this case you would need to prove not only harassment of texts but that Selena was in sustained fear. Depending on the jurisdiction and charge there could also be legal requirement that the suspect actually had ability or intent to carry out threats.’
