Investigators have arrested a Seattle-area conman now accused of hacking news and legal information websites that publicized his earlier misdeeds.

Federal prosecutors claim Andrew Rakhshan overloaded Leagle.com in 2015 after the Dallas-based legal website refused to remove court filings from an unflattering lawsuit involving Rakhshan. Rakhshan, 37, is also alleged to have hammered the websites of Canada’s national broadcaster and a large Australian newspaper after they refused Rakhshan’s demands to remove news reports on his crimes.

Irish mum of teen who took her own life after cyber bullying warns of dangers of anonymous apps

A heartbroken Irish mum who lost her teenage daughter to suicide has warned of the impact apps that allow online bullies to remain anonymous can have.

Elle Trowbridge, 16, from Kilclogher Co Tyrone, took her life earlier this year – five years after she was first targeted by bullies online who encouraged her to self-harm.

Elle’s brave mum Mandy said the online abuse first began when her daughter was 11.

The devastated mum-of-three reckons the messages were sent on the app by someone who knew her daughter – but who was allowed to be anonymous due to the app.

Elle Trowbridge

She said on RTE Radio One’s Today with Sean O’Rourke: “The problem we had with these messages was that these people were allowed to remain anonymous.

“There was no proof of anything, no hard evidence of anything or anyone in particular. We weren’t able to find out who started this.
