Judge Bars Woman From Twitter As Part Of Sentence

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) – A suburban Philadelphia woman will be tweeting no more, because a judge has sentenced her to stay off Twitter as part of a stalking conviction.

Montgomery County Judge William Carpenter barred 34-year-old Sadiyyah Young of Pottstown from communicating over Twitter for at least five years.

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

The monthlong battle included a tweet that read, in part, “somebody should pay all these people a visit, bust out windows and cut tires!’’

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