Man fined €2000 over frape on ex-girlfriend's page
A 30-year-old Donegal man has been fined €2,000 after posting an offensive status on his ex-girlfriend’s Facebook page.

A local garda told prosecuting counsel Sean Gillane SC that the man had gone to her house on April 6th, 2011 to confront her over a perceived infidelity. After he left, the woman noticed that he had taken her phone. He then logged into her Facebook account and posted a status that said she was “a whore” who would take “any offers.” He was arrested shortly after and admitted writing the post.

It is the first prosecution for criminal damage to a social media account. The Donegal man was charged under the Criminal Damage Act 1991 which carries a maximum penalty of ten years in prison and a €10,000 fine.

The man cannot be named aslast month he was acquitted by a jury last month of raping and falsely imprisoning the woman in her home on the same date.
