Eight Months in Jail For Threatening on Facebook

Vanlyn Bethell, age 21, of Flamingo Gardens in Nassau was charged by police, after an reverse IP trace was done from the victim's email and Facebook messages.
Judge Derence Rolle-Davis handed down the sentence in Nassau and ordered the offender to undergo counselling for four months.
