Some prison inmates using Facebook to harass victims of their crimes

From a pretty interesting, somewhat disturbing, AP story on prison inmates using social media (mainly Facebook it seems) to harass victims.

I haven’t heard of any New Mexico cases along these lines, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t happening.
