Judge bans stalker from Twitter

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia woman has been banned from using Twitter as part of her sentence for a stalking conviction. Montgomery County Judge William Carpenter barred 34-year-old Sadiyyah Young of Potts-town from tweeting for at least five years. Authorities say Young used derogatory and harassing tweets against people involved in a custody case regarding her children, including a judge who ruled against her. lawyers, social workers and foster parents.

The monthlong battle included a tweet that read, in part: “Somebody should pay all these people a visit, bust out windows and cut tires!”

Young pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor charges of stalking, forgery, and identity theft. She also was sentenced to 11 1/2 months to 23 months in jail and three years’ probation.
