The 16-year-old son of Denise New from Arkadelphia filed the complaint and requested a no contact order after his mother hacked into his Facebook account, changed his password and made slanderous statements about him, according to local station KATV.
"You're within your legal rights to monitor your child and to have a conversation with your child on Facebook whether it's his account, or your account or whoever's account," Denise New told reporters.
"It's crazy to me that we're even having this interview."
She said that she first started tracking his account after a friend mentioned the teenager had been speeding after becoming upset over a girl. She said she would fight the matter in court.
"Oh yeah, I'm going to fight it. If I have to go even higher up, I'm going to. I'm not gonna let this rest. I think this could be a precedent-setting moment for parents."
New's teenage son lives with his grandmother, who has right of custody, but New said that they had always had a good relationship.
