Net Asbo slap for boasting Bebo teen

Bigged up criminal exploits, dissed police

A 17-year-old from Norfolk who "boasted of his criminal exploits on Bebo" has been slapped with a two-year anti-social behaviour order (Asbo), banning him from publishing material online which is "threatening or abusive" and "promotes criminal activity".

According to the Telegraph, Norwich Youth Court imposed the order after the defendant posted "comments and photographs on the social networking site glorifying his criminal exploits including drug-taking". He admitted a series of offences, including "stealing a vehicle and possession of cannabis".

Police probing his Bebo page also discovered he'd "made offensive comments against officers" on the site. Norfolk police's PC Tim Chapman said: "The comments on the Bebo website demonstrated his attitude towards offending, the community and the police." ®
