Angie Olah of Boonsboro said that when someone posted her name and phone number on an Internet porn site without her permission she was shocked to learn that it wasn't illegal.
She asked the Maryland House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to make such action a crime.
Olah, a park ranger at South Mountain Recreation Area, was bombarded by obscene callers who read a 1999 Internet posting, which falsely claimed she was willing to perform specific sex acts, said Del. Louise V. Snodgrass, R-Frederick/Washington.
"It was like writing someone's name and phone number on the bathroom wall, but with modern technology," Olah testified.
After she changed her phone number and the same thing happened a few months later, Maryland State Police tracked down a suspect. But Frederick County State's Attorney Scott Rolle said he had to tell Olah the case could not be prosecuted.
It's against the law to harass someone by telephone or e-mail, but not over the Internet.
