WENTWORTH, N.C. (WGHP) A convicted sex offender was sentenced to 66-89 months in prison Thursday after officials said he sent a Facebook "friend request" to one of his victims.
Victor Terrell Gaston, 36, of Reidsville, pleaded guilty to one count of using social media as a sex offender in Rockingham County Superior Court. Judge Stuart Albright sentenced his as a habitual offender. Officials say Gaston sent the request on July 4, exactly 10 years after the offense occurred in 2001. Gaston had been ordered to not have contact with the victim.
Gaston was arrested three days after sending the request. Officers said he had been using Facebook for about two weeks.
Gaston had been a registered sex offender since November 26, 2003. He has previously been convicted of charges involving assault, larceny, indecent liberties with a child and burglary.

Guys that do that sort of thing must be delusional. They take the “no means yes” thing way too far, by several orders of magnitude.

My time on FB is certainly making life more interesting than it needs to be. I had another "old acquaintance" post so much OWS commie crap on FB that I finally snapped and responded with my usual "scorch Earth" intensity. I don't need to see that crap on FB every day, and if I'm compelled to respond it's because I want things to sink in before I "unfriend"...
Anyway, just ranting...
