Drew isn't charged in Meier's death, but her lawyer said the trial appeared to center on the death, not Drew's computer use. Prosecutors said that Drew pretended to be a new boy in town, "Josh Evans," and feigned interest in Meier. Eventually, someone sent a message from "Evans" saying that the world would be a better place without Meier. The message brought Meier to tears shortly before she hanged herself.
Prosecutors claim Grills sent the message after telling Drew. Drew is the only person charged in the case. She faces four charges for conspiracy and accessing protected computers without authorization. She faces up to five years in prison for each count. The unprecedented trial is taking place in Los Angeles because that's where the MySpace computer servers are located.
