That is a stretch. In any serious court of law, the emotional stuff will be thrown out also. The prosecution will have to prove specifically that she committed each charge she was listed with. If they can do that, fine - but ultimately if you have a non-biased jury they are going to probably find that it is too much of a stretch.

It wasn't that long ago that some guy was in danger of being jailed for years because he created a Myspace profile of one of the kings of his country. Are you saying he should have been thrown in jail over it?
