• Victim's mother speaks out against cyberbullying

    By: Tenikka Smith


    The case of a Weddington high school student charged with cyberbullying was continued again and for the first time, the victim's mother is speaking out.

    Deputies arrested Kaylan Ashrafi in September after they say she harassed her classmate last year, even after she was ordered to stop.

    Union County deputies said Ashrafi posted negative, graphic messages about the victim on her Twitter page.

    The victim's mom said the suspect posted lewd messages about her and her daughter that were not true.

    "I don't understand why this young lady did this to us and why after having done this and her family being aware of it that she was allowed to continue using social media," Dana Milford said.

    Milford moved her daughter to a different school to help her get a fresh start.
