Prosecutor Jack Banas said there is a state law that makes stalking on the Internet a crime. He is reviewing police reports to see if this happened in the Megan Meier case.
...
County prosecutor Jack Banas said Monday that he'd look into the case, but that he had yet to meet with the Meier family or read the details of reports. He wouldn't say whether he'll bring charges, but noted that no one, including the U.S. Justice Department, found charges warranted.
"They're probably right," Banas said.
...
No one has been charged in Megan's suicide, but St. Charles County Prosecutor Jack Banas said he is reviewing the details of the case.
...
St. Charles County's prosecuting attorney, Jack Banas, said he was reviewing the case to determine whether anyone could be charged with a crime.
...
St. Charles County, Missouri, Prosecuting Attorney Jack Banas said an 18-year-old woman posed as "Josh" on MySpace to find out what Megan was saying about a neighbor's daughter.
...
The message said Megan was "mean" to her friends, Banas said.
...
"There is no way that anybody could know that talking to someone or saying that you're mean to your friends on the Internet would create a substantial risk," Banas said. "It certainly created a potential risk and, unfortunately for the Meiers, that potential became reality. But under the law we just couldn't show that."
But Banas said that conclusion doesn't mean no one is to blame. "Regardless of what we can charge or what we can't charge, there is no question the adults should have said something to stop this," he said.
Asked whether he is satisfied with laws pertaining to the case, Banas said, "The bottom line is there are some -- I think -- loopholes that I think need to be cleaned up."
The prosecutor said his inability to file charges does not mean those involved in the suicide will go unpunished.
"The loss of a life of a person that they once talked to as a friend, I'm sure, is just twisting them all up inside," Banas said.
Over several weeks, many of the exchanges on MySpace concerned innocuous topics such as what sports they liked, Banas said.
But on October 15, 2006, "another teenage young lady" was given the password to the "Josh" account, Banas said. She reportedly sent Megan a message saying she had heard the girl was "mean to your friends" and adding, "I don't know if I want to be your friend anymore."
Banas said that Megan responded, "Who's saying this?
...
Megan asked "Josh" why the messages were nice a day after they were unkind, Banas said.
...
The woman then "fired a statement back to Megan saying, 'I'm not going to tell you who told me that, I don't do that, I don't tell on my friends,' " Banas said.
Megan responded with a message expressing anger and calling "Josh" "a few names," according to Banas.
...
"Josh" then sent a statement that included something to the effect of "this world would be a better place without you," Banas said.
...
Telling her mom that "I can't believe you're not on my side," Megan ran upstairs and hanged herself, Banas said.
...
Missouri's harassment statute says nothing about the Internet, and the stalking statute requires repeated conversations, so neither would apply in this case, Banas said.
The purpose of the neighbor who arranged for the "Josh" character "was never to cause her emotional harassment that we can prove," Banas said.
...
St. Charles County Prosecutor Jack Banas said he heard about the postings through the news media and asked the sheriff's department to investigate.
Banas said he had no idea if someone might be charged under the Dardenne Prairie measure. He explained any charges he brings are under state law, not under local ordinances.
...
Banas used the documents in deciding that he could not file charges in connection with Megan's death.
...
Minutes after House's ruling, Banas surrendered the documents to Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Llewellyn.
...
Banas responded to the public outcry, saying he would review the case. He requested interview transcripts from the FBI.
More than two weeks ago, Banas said he would not file charges - he could find no proof of a crime. He also concluded that the story was more complicated than the one widely disseminated.
The Post-Dispatch submitted a public record request that day for the investigation documents.
Banas considered releasing the transcripts but said he had to consult with the FBI. He said the interviews would not reveal anything more significant than already known.

County prosecutor Jack Banas has vowed to file any charges he can, but he is optimistic. "This is a problematic case," he says. The town has drafted an ordinance that would ban cyberbullying and the Meiers are pursuing a civil case against the Drews. For now, the grieving parents have only the memories of burying their daughter in the birthday dress she never got to wear.

Banas said a grand jury would not like the fact that no matter what led to the confrontation, a motorcyclist walked up to a car driven by a grandfather with a grandmother, child and a dog.

“The only person that is missing here is Mother Teresa as a passenger,” Banas said.

He pointed out that he is bound to uphold the state statute. “It’s a very difficult case, and I don’t necessarily agree that he should be able to use that much force in this situation, but the statute gives him that, and that’s what we’re left with.”

Randell disagreed. “I am not getting justice because of the Missouri castle law,” he said.
