Jailtime because of Facebook photos?

It's an eye-opening story teen social networkers should know about. "Two weeks after Joshua Lipton was charged in a drunken driving crash that seriously injured a woman, the 20-year-old [Rhode Island] college junior attended a Halloween party dressed … in an orange jumpsuit labeled 'Jail Bird'," according to a report in CNN.com. Another victim of the crash gave copies of the photos to the prosecutor in Lipton's case. The prosecutor presented the photos of the "unrepentant partier" in a PowerPoint presentation at Lipton's sentencing, and the judge – who later acknowledged he was influenced by the photos – gave Lipton two years, calling him "depraved."
