Man pleads guilty to harassing police on Facebook



A man has pleaded guilty to harassment for sending Facebook messages to a Burlington police officer.


The Hawk Eye reports 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.
