Virginia mom charged after sending daughter to school with device to record alleged bullying


A Virginia mother has reportedly been charged with a felony after putting a recording device in her daughter’s backpack to catch alleged bullying.

Sarah Sims put a digital recorder into her 9-year-old daughter’s backpack in September in an attempt to obtain proof that she was being bullied at Ocean View Elementary School in Norfolk and to show that no one was helping her daughter, WAVY-TV reported.

“If I’m not getting an answer from you what am I left to do?” Sims said of trying to take action on her own, noting the school didn’t respond to her repeated calls and emails.

Sims’ recorder was found, and her daughter was reportedly moved to another classroom. A month later, Sims was charged with felony use of device to intercept oral communication and misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to WAVY. With the charge, Sims could face five years in prison.
