Man Sentenced to 4 Months in Jail in Part For Posting Naked Picture of Ex-Girlfriend on Facebook

Getting revenge may sound nice, but in practice you could end up doing even more damage to yourself. It is much safer, and healthier, to try and move on amicably.

"Twenty-year-old Joshua Simon Ashby will serve four months in jail after he pled guilty to a charge distributing indecent material on Friday, an act which was described as one of "irresponsible drunken rage" by presiding judge, The Dominion Post reports.

The act of online revenge was one of several charges to which the young man pled guilty. He was also accused of threatening to kill, willful damage, theft and assault.

It is believed that this is the first time someone has gone to prison for using Facebook in such a manner.
