Anne King was arrested and charged with a non-existing crime after she posted personal comments regarding her ex-husband on her Facebook account. The biggest problem was that her ex-husband was the Washington County deputy and her charges were handed down by a magistrate judge who was found to not have a law degree, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
After posting how her prior husband refused to bring medicine for his sick children, King found herself enthralled with five years of legal battles that would end with her winning under free speech and receiving $100,000 and an apology. “At first I was terrified,” said King of the experience. “I couldn’t believe that I could be going to jail for something I said,” she continued. Although King won her case she still feels as if she is being watched by law enforcement in her town.
