Judge makes Drew's acquittal official

Los Angeles – A federal judge in Los Angeles has made his acquittal of Lori Drew official.

In November, a jury convicted the suburban St. Louis woman of three misdemeanor computer crimes.

She was accused of participating in an internet bullying scheme on the My Space social networking site that lead to the suicide of 13-year-old Megan Meier.

Last month, Judge George Wu said Drew's conviction was constitutionally questionable, and would make a criminal of anyone who's ever violated a website's terms of service.

Wu's decision became official late Friday when he issued the ruling in writing.
