Facebook “likes” result in contempt charges in Pennsylvania case

A Pennsylvania man is facing contempt charges this week after "liking" photos on a Facebook page in violation of a no-contact order. The petitioner in the restraining order case had claimed that Bellanco had been stalking and harassing her and had  "threatened to shoot her knee cap to watch her suffer," according to the Times-Leader out of northern Pennsylvania. Based on these allegations, the judge had granted a one-year no contact restraining order to the petitioner in early August. Police arrested Bellanco on Monday after he liked 22 photos and videos on the petitioner's page.
