Woman Charged with DUI Gets Jail for Facebook Post
Posted on Sep 20, 2012
A Kentucky woman spent 2 days in jail in August after she posted a message (ending with "LOL") on Facebook that referred to her July DUI charge and the accident her drunk driving allegedly caused: her car smashed into another vehicle carrying several teenagers. A parent of one of the victims, reportedly upset to see the seeming flippant message, reported it to the Court.
The Judge had, in the initial July proceeidng, ordered the woman to close her Facebook account. The defendant chose not too, later posting the "LOL" message. She was found to be in contempt of court and jailed for 2 days. She's expected in Court later this month on the DUI and other charges stemming from the July accident.
