Restrained from using Facebook

leave a comment »

Karen Beckett, 51, called Elizabeth Purnell her mother, 72, a “nasty bitch” on Facebook and urged a relative to “bury the nasty cow”. She has been banned from contacting her mum for two years.

She also phoned abuse from home in Fishponds, Bristol. Beckett was given a restraining order and a £233 fine despite telling city JPs she was drunk.

The Law Society’s Ian Kelcey said: “Facebook is a dangerous medium to say things about someone which may breach the law.”
