LOS ANGELES prosecutors have brought the first case of "cyber-stalking", or harassment by computer.
The prosecution is against a spurned security guard who posted advertisements on the internet in his victim's name - claiming she was "into rape fantasy and gang-bang fantasy" - including her address, phone number and instructions on how to bypass her burglar alarm.
This is the first case to be brought under a new law introduced last month.
His victim received a stream of obscene telephone calls, and people visiting her home address making lewd suggestions.
