“No Contact” Includes Facebook

A recent case out of Bloomsburg demonstrates that when someone tells you not to contact them in any way, shape, or form, the law can back them up.  The mother of a Bloomsburg University student was recently convicted of harassment for tagging her daughter in a Facebook post after the daughter obtained a Protection From Abuse order against the mother.  Mom was fined $300, the maximum fine for a summary offense.  No word on whether the police will pursue a criminal contempt charge against mom for violating the PFA.
