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. A photo of the ex-wife soon ended up on a Facebook page called “Mothers who abuse kids,” which Weiner then “liked.” Weiner was sent to jail for 60 days, although the judge later amended her ruling to time served and he was released.
