A teenager who posted explicit comments and jokes about April Jones on his Facebook page has been jailed for 12 weeks. "Woods was arrested for his own safety after about 50 people descended on his home. He pleaded guilty at Chorley magistrates court to sending by means of a public electronic communications network a message or other matter that is grossly offensive. The chairman of the bench, Bill Hudson, said Woods's comments were so "abhorrent" he deserved the longest sentence the court could hand down. Hudson added: "The reason for the sentence is the seriousness of the offence, the public outrage that has been caused and we felt there was no other sentence this court could have passed which conveys to you the abhorrence that many in society feel this crime should receive." The court was told Woods's Facebook page was available to a large number of people." - Extract from the Guardian website. Surely this is ridiculous? Surely this cannot now act as precedent for future cases? What is the world coming to when you can't make inappropriate jokes to your friends on facebook?????? ..... Discuss.
