MySpace Used To Prove Parole Violation

Yet another MySpace user is paying for his profile. Maybe he should have opted for a private profile...or none at all.

Christopher Leon was sentenced to a year of intensive probation after authorities viewed evidence of his violations on his MySpace page. Even though he did not use his real name on the website, authorities were still able to find him on the website, more than likely by viewing his friends' profiles. It was his electronic communication with those friends, along with the pictures he posted showing him drinking that got him in trouble.

Christopher Leon was one of 16 people charged in the beating death of Nicholas Swanson during a large fight.
