"At worst, Hillary Transue thought she might get a stern lecture when she appeared before a judge for building a spoof MySpace page mocking the assistant principal at her high school in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. She was a stellar student who had never been in trouble, and the page stated clearly at the bottom that it was just a joke.

Instead, the judge sentenced her to three months at a juvenile detention center on a charge of harassment." https://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/13/us/13judge.html?fbclid=IwAR0oZ92kscvyvOPdlhRBn-TefN7Oo8Nwf0Bai_vun9swIb3-GVSY5FJnZ3o
