Facebook And A Woman Scorned

Beware a woman scorned, the old saying goes.

We add: Especially if she has a laptop.

Dana Thorton turned Facebook into Defacebook, and now she’s going to find out if she has any friends in a Morris County jury. A Superior Court judge has ruled she must stand trial for identity theft.

Prosecutors say Thorton smeared her ex-boyfriend, a narcotics detective in Parsippany, by creating a Facebook page in his name and, while impersonating the detective, posted admissions that he used drugs, hired prostitutes and contracted herpes. She has pleaded not guilty and faces 18 months in jail.
