Sarah Sims was concerned that her 9-year-old child was being bullied at school. She reported the issue to school authorities, but did not feel that they were taking enough action to correct the issue. So she sent a cellphone to school to record the alleged bullying and show administrators how bad it was.
Little did she know that she would soon be facing potential criminal charges.
According to Reason, Sims’ child attended Ocean View Elementary in Norfolk, Virginia. After Sims sent the phone to school, school officials found the phone on her child and confiscated it.
Weeks later, unexpectedly, Sims found herself facing criminal charges for wiretapping and contributing to the delinquency of a minor due to the event.
