No charges filed in MySpace suicide

Lori Drew can relax.

"Their purpose was never to cause her emotional harassment that we can prove," [St. Charles County Prosecutor Jack] Banas said. "There's a difference between what people think or what we may believe the reason was that they created this, it's what we can prove and what a jury would believe."

Banas said statements from the neighbor and two teens who participated in the fictitious account couldn't meet criminal standards for the state's statutes on harassment, stalking or endangering the welfare of a child.
"Their purpose was never to cause emotional harrasment"? I'd like to know what their purpose was, then.
