A UK first! An arrest for the first troll to troll themselves!
A woman has become the first person in Britain - maybe even the world although it beggars belief –to be jailed for trolling herself on the internet.
Michelle Chapman, 24, bombarded her own Facebook page with abuse, after setting up fake accounts for her dad and her new stepmother after falling out with them.
Then, as if that level of admin wasn’t enough, she then sent herself hundreds of abusive posts, mainly of a sexual nature, according to the Western Daily Press
THEN, she reported this abuse to the police, claiming she’d been trolled by the couple, which lead to arrests and warnings by the police.
It was only when forensic internet experts looked through her computer, that they established all the accounts had been set up at her home.
Details of this madness were revealed at Truro Crown Court in Cornwall where Chapman was jailed for 20 months.
Unsurprisingly, she’s also been banned from ever having computer equipment or contacting her family again.
