Joe Rizoli, CCFIILE.com states: Interesting this comment: >>to harm the reputation of a victim by posting nude pictures of the victim on the internet<< This is a new slant to what was done to Jim Rizoli three years ago by a cyber bully resident of the town. I think it really is interesting that the "to harm the reputation of a victim by posting nude pictures of the victim on the internet" was NEVER brought up in Jim's case when he recently went to court, even though the "nude" body picture obviously was not Jim Rizoli's, the intent was to " harm the reputation of a victim by posting nude pictures of the victim on the internet" http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/news/x230256508/Man-accused-of-harassing-Jim-Rizoli-on-trial-today http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/highlight/x816847968/Man-gets-probation-in-Jim-Rizoli-harassment-case Lets hope the public is kept aware of the kooks out there that are more than happy to damage anyones reputation at the drop of a hat.
