Facebool Posting Causes Increased Jail Time

Yet another stupid Facebook story, this from the Buffalo News.  It seems that 17 year old Ashley Sullivan, after crashing her car and killing her boyfriend while driving drunk, posted a picture of herself on Facebook with the caption “Drunk in Florida”. She took the trip a month after the fateful crash.  The county judge sentenced her to six months in jail and five years probation for criminally negligent homicide and misdemeanor DWI. The judge said that he was “troubled by your conduct since the crash”.  Well, yeah.  And there’s a moral here, once again, about social networking and social obliviousness.
