Judge: No more Facebook for Mason City man

Posted:

MASON CITY (KWWL) -- A magistrate has ordered a Mason City man to close a Facebook account and not make personal use of the Internet. 

20-year-old Taylor Everett had pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was given two years of probation, a $625 fine that was suspended, plus the Internet restrictions. 

Prosecutors say Everett had suggested during a Facebook conversation with a 15-year-old girl that they shower together.  Magistrate Patrick Byrne said in his sentencing order that Everett's rehabilitation depends upon Everett "seeking out company in person rather than online, where he is less able to judge reality." 

Byrne says the girl gave a different age online.
