Woman’s Stalking Sentence Includes Twitter Ban

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (November 8, 2013) Sadiyyah Young, 34, of Pottstown, Pa., was banned from using Twitter as part of her sentence for a stalking conviction.

Montgomery County Judge William Carpenter barred Young of from tweeting for at least five years.

Authorities say Young used derogatory and harassing tweets against people involved in a custody case involving her children, including a judge who ruled against her, lawyers, social workers and foster parents.

The month-long battle included a tweet that read, in part, "Somebody should pay all these people a visit, bust out windows and cut tires!"

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