In court over Facebook posts
Well known social commentator Patrick King appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday accused of sending annoying Facebook messages to Starcom Network’s Station Manager David Ellis and another man.
King, 52, a marketing representative, of Campaign Land, Martindales Road, St Michael, denied that between July 17 and 18, 2019, he used a computer to send an electronic communication that was menacing in character, and that he intended to cause or was reckless as to whether he caused annoyance, inconvenience, distress or anxiety to Ellis.
He was also charged, in Holetown’s jurisdiction, that he used a computer to send electronic communications, on July 10, 11 and 12 this year, that were menacing in nature, and that he intended to cause or was reckless as to whether he caused annoyance, inconvenience, distress or anxiety to any of the people to whom he intended.
Those alleged messages were promised exposés posted on his Facebook relating to John Fleming. (HLE)
