Sentence for Facebook friend request

Asking to friend someone on Facebook can be illegal...if there’s a restraining order involved.

Swedish Radio’s P4 Gotland reports that  an 18 year old has been sentenced to probation and fines after he sent a Facebook friend request to someone he had been ordered not to contact.

Gotland District Court ruled that “a friend request is an active action intended to establish contact”, and is more than a trivial violation of a restraining order.
