Australian jailed for defacing Facebook pages


An Australian man was jailed for a year on Friday for defacing Facebook tributes to two dead children with child pornography and offensive comments.

Bradley Paul Hampson vandalised the Facebook pages dedicated to two Queensland children who died in February 2010 — a 12-year-old boy who was stabbed in the schoolyard and an eight-year-old girl found dead in a drain.

More than 9,000 people had joined the Facebook pages, mostly to express shock and offer their condolences, on which Hampson posted digitally altered images of the children and offensive messages, reports said.
