A New York woman faces a year in jail for violating an order of protection involving her former sister-in-law — because the violator linked the woman in a Facebook post that called her “stupid.”
Maria Gonzalez tried to argue that the protection order “did not specifically prohibit [her] from Facebook communication” with her former sister-in-law, Maribel Calderon.
Westchester County Supreme Court Justice Susan Capeci disagreed, writing, “The order of protection prohibited the defendant from contacting the protected party by electronic or any other means.”
The order against Gonzalez was related to her divorce from Calderon’s brother, Rafael Calderon.
