Girlfriend 'likes' Sheriff's Office Facebook page, gets boyfriend caught

As Neetzan Zimmerman writes for Gawker, a Maryland man was arrested on unspecified sex charges not long after his girlfriend “liked” the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page. She liked the page in an effort to keep “one step ahead” of the police, monitoring the page to see whether or not the police had made any progress in finding her boyfriend.

Unfortunately for the pursued, liking the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page was the wrong move.

“Once she ‘liked’ our Facebook page,” said Sheriff Brian Hieatt, as Zimmerman quotes, “she put everything in motion for us to make the arrest. She wanted to get updated to see if we were searching … If she wouldn’t have liked us, we might not have located him this quickly.”

As mentioned above, it’s not clear what type of sex offense the Maryland man was arrested for, but almost any accusation of sex crime, if it leads to a conviction, can result in sex offender registration.

Given the facts of this case (girlfriend hiding boyfriend) this Maryland man could have been a young person who was just over the age of majority, accused of having sex with his underage girlfriend.
