Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I'm an inmate. Sometimes we get our hands on contraband cell phones and we have the chance to update our Facebook status ("still in prison"). The guards forbid us from using Facebook but, I mean, we're already in prison -- what are they going to do to us, right? 

Answer: Be careful. If you are in South Carolina, that Facebook update may soon mean 30 days more prison time. (AP, Facebook may mean more jail time for S.C. inmates)

2) Question: I do not have a meth lab. Do not have one, never, ever did. How can I get the police to leave me alone?

Answer: Have you considered spray-painting that message in red paint across your garage? (Legal Antics, Oh, well in that case, move along then. Nothing to see here)

3) Question: I'm in love and I just got married! Yes, I'm still married to another person but she is in a different state and I have a plan: I'm going to unfriend her on Facebook so she'll never see the new wedding photos. This will work, right?

Answer: Being married to two people at the same time is called "polygamy" and it is a felony. And FYI, your "first" wife just might locate those photos elsewhere on Facebook even if you unfriend her. (Grand Rapids Press, Alleged Grand Rapids polygamist told second wife he was divorced, police say)
