PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — An investigation is underway in Pittsylvania County after a minor reportedly engaged in online harassment.
According to the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded Chatham Middle School on Monday, May 23 for an incident involving a minor who violated Virginia’s law for harassment via computer.
Officials tell WFXR News that the Pittsylvania Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office authorized a petition against the minor for that harassment violation.
Due to the offender’s age, the sheriff’s office will not release that person’s name.
This case is still under investigation, but authorities say the matter is now in the hands of the Juvenile Intake Office.
