Social Media Privacy Rules Extended To Students

Dec 26, 2013

A new Illinois law aims to protect internet privacy for students. It was inspired by a similar law approved last year.

State Representative LaShawn Ford stands accused of 17 counts of bank fraud and lying to the bank. Federal prosecutors say the Chicago Democrat took out a line of credit worth a half million dollars starting in 2006 from the now-failed ShoreBank. Ford owns a real estate company.
