I am being harassed online in a public chat room, and via email by this male stating the i am an lesbian. which in fact, i am not!!! he emails lesbian pictures to people in the chat rooms with my screen name and email address on it. it all started because i have asked him to stop chatting pedophile statements towards the other members children, when i stopped chatting with him, he started this online defamation, slander, and libel against me. i would like to know what can be done so he can stop this foolishness.

You can sue him for defamation as well as harassment. If he too is in NY, I would file in the small claims court where no lawyer is required.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
