Man Who Violated Judge’s Order on Facebook Sent to Jail
A Florida man who was warned by a judge to stop harassing his ex-wife was sent to jail for criminal contempt after liking a post on Facebook, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Pasco Circuit Court Judge Lauralee Westine ordered that Timothy Weiner and his ex-wife must both refrain from disparaging or threatening each other on social media.
