British Teen Sentenced to 12 Weeks in Jail For Facebook Comments

Made remarks about the recent abduction of a Welsh girl


A teenage troll who posted "despicable" comments on his Facebook page about missing youngster April Jones has been jailed for 12 weeks.

Matthew Woods, 19, from Chorley, Lancashire, made a number of derogatory posts about April and missing Madeline McCann after getting the idea from Sickipedia—a website that "trades in sick jokes".
