HARTFORD - A push to criminalize cyber-bullying by Connecticut's attorney general appears to be gaining momentum.

Currently, if a bully is caught going after a kid online, he or she would be charged with a misdemeanor.

A new bill in the works could change that to a serious criminal matter.

State Attorney General George Jepsen wants to make it a felony for anyone who bullies online.

Last week, a list of dozens of school girls in Greenwich was posted on the Internet calling them promiscuous.
