    Former High School Students Accused of Cyber Harassing Teacher
    Danbury Police
    Mikayla Ramos and Nickolas Brito are accused of setting up a fake Twitter account and harassing a teacher with it.

    Two 18-year-old former Danbury High Schools students are accused of impersonating their teacher on Twitter and harassing her.

    The former Danbury High School teacher contacted police on Feb. 20 after learning someone had set up a Twitter account pretending to be her. It used her name and photo, but portrayed her in a derogatory manner.

    After investigating, police identified two former Danbury High School students as suspects.

    The two students were seniors at the time of the incident, and police have obtained arrest warrants for Nickolas Brito and Mikayla Ramos, both of Danbury.

    Brito and Ramos turned themselves in to the Danbury Police Department on Wednesday and were charged with conspiracy to commit criminal impersonation and conspiracy to commit harassment in the second degree.

    Ramos was also charged with providing a false statement.

    Both were released on a written promise to appear and are due in court on 8/18/15.
