With “Friends” like that…

Posted by Ron Coleman on February 15, 2008

This actually sounds about right:

A Staten Island judge says that sending a MySpace friend request to someone who has an hamburglar.jpgorder of protection against you is against the law.The ruling this week lets stand charges that a 16-year-old broke the law when she sent friend requests on the social networking site to a woman and her two daughters.

Criminal Court Judge Matthew A. Sciarrino Jr. ruled that even though MySpace users can ignore, deny or block friend requests, “that request was still a contact, and no contact was allowed” by the temporary order of protection.

It is odd to hear of a 16-year-old female being restricted by an order of protection, though.
