+ - Jailed over fake FaceBook profile

Submitted by lixee
lixee (863589) writes "Celebrities' fake FaceBook profiles abound. But is it criminal? The Moroccan justice system apparently thinks so. An IT engineer created a profile for the prince Rachid and, as a result, was sentenced to 3 years in jail and a 1,300$ fine for "villainous practices linked to the alleged theft of the [prince's] identity". He was also allegedly beaten and tortured until he lost consciousness several times. It is worth noting that in a recent case, that particular judge sentenced a member of the staff in a kindergarten to 2 years in prison for sexually abusing children of 4 years old.
