WIERD NEWS: Man Banned From the Internet?
Posted February 14th, 2014 @ 12:53pm

A Wisconsin man has been banned from the Internet for 30 months because of a prank he played on his neighbor. 

31-year-old Jason Willis posted a fake personal ad on Craigslist for his neighbor, asking for nude men to come to her house. A little while later, several men showed up at her door, one of them wearing nothing but a trench coat. They told her they got her name and address from an ad on Craigslist. That's when she called police.

Willis pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 months probation, which includes a ban from using the Internet. The judge explained, "If you want to drive drunk, you're not allowed to drive. To me, a public availability of the internet – to use it the way he did – is unconscionable."
