The woman who helped her child create a fake MySpace account to harass a girl who later committed suicide was convicted of misdemeanors.

Lori Drew was found guilty of three counts of accessing a computer without authorization. Each count is punishable by up to a year in jail. She was not found guilty of the felony charge of accessing a computer without authorization to inflict emotional distress.

Prosecutors said Drew, her daughter and Drew's business assistant set up an account of a fictitious boy so they could tease 13 year-old Megan Meier.

Meier committed suicide after she received a message that said the world would be better off without her.
