“If you’re a bully, you’re now open to civil lawsuits and criminal charges. If you’re a victim of bullying, you now have options available to put a stop to this devastating process.”

This is the message that San Antonio attorney James Carter IV delivered to students at Uvalde High School on Thursday. His presentation focused on cyberbullying, like the social media messages that led Alamo Heights sophomore David Molak to commit suicide a little more than two years ago. Carter was instrumental in the drafting of a new law addressing cyberbullying.

A video segment in the program featured messages from members of the Molak family and a digital album of photos of David in his younger years.

Carter explained that David’s Law puts into effect real consequences for cyberbullying.

“If you’re a bully, take care. You have no place to hide. There’s no safe place from which to bully,” he said.
