AUSTIN -- "David's Law" is set to be filed in the Texas legislature Monday, aiming to prevent cyberbullying.
As KENS 5 reported, the proposed law is named for 16-year-old David Molak of Alamo Heights. He took his own life after police said he was a victim of cyberbullying.
State Sen. Jose Menendez and State Rep. Ina Minjarez are behind the legislation. Monday is expected to mark the next step forward in the law potentially passing through the state legislature.
The proposed law will reportedly hold cyberbullies accountable for their actions, even if the bullying takes place off campus.
Molak was found dead in early January after committing suicide at his home.
