Facebook has become such a part of the daily lives for many of us that we post without much thought. Perhaps, that is why one Guadalupe County (near San Antonio) prosecutor violated a court order. Assistant District Attorney Larry Bloomquist posted an update on a manslaughter trial he was prosecuting. Mr. Bloomquist had posted an update on Facebook when the trial first started. The presiding judge then warned both parties against anymore Facebook updates. See San Antonio Express News report.
But, when the jury returned a verdict against the defendants, Prosecutor Bloomquist posted the jury result. "Happy ending," he added. District Judge Gary Steel was not happy. He found Mr, Bloomquist in contempt and fined the prosecutor $400.
