Man Who Befriended Undercover Cop on Facebook Loses Appeal

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware's Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a felon convicted on gun charges after accepting a Facebook "friend" request from an undercover police officer.

A court panel on Tuesday said a detective's viewing of 40-year-old Terrance Everett's Facebook page did not violate constitutional prohibitions against illegal searches.

Everett was sentenced as a habitual offender last year to 15 years in prison after being convicted of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.

Everett was arrested in 2015 after accepting a friend request about two years earlier from a detective using a fictitious Facebook profile.

The detective then used information gained from Everett's posts, including a photo of showing a handgun on a nightstand, to obtain a search warrant for Everett's house, where officers found a loaded 9mm pistol.

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
