Guilty Plea in Facebook Harassment Case

BURLINGTON, IA (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to harassment for sending Facebook messages to a Burlington police officer.

40-year-old Jesse Edward Whalen pleaded guilty to third-degree harassment Monday in Des Moines County Associate Court.

Court documents show that Whalen was upset with the way he thought the officer treated a relative during a July traffic stop. Officials say Whalen messaged the police officer on Facebook and called him several derogatory names.

Whalen was fined $300, plus $105 in surcharges and $60 in court costs.
