WASHINGTON — Believe it or not, a Facebook post has landed a man situated in Tennessee in prison for 15 years.
By Daily Times and a BGR News report, Malik First Born Allah Farrad, was charged for being a convicted felon in possession of a gun based on a Facebook selfie.
Farrad will be spending the next 15-and-a-half years in a federal penitentiary because of this single Facebook post.
