Today in Hilariously Ironic Name News, a man in Australia named Peter Sheather was arrested for sending text messages to eight people depicting "nudity and lewd acts."
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports that Peter Sheather's home was raided and mobile phones, laptop computers and documents, in what appears to be one of the first of its kind in Australia. Peter Sheather was charged with eight counts of using a carrier service to menace, harass or offend. Peter Sheather has not entered a plea and will reappear in June.
I sincerely hope that similar prosecutions find their way across the Pacific. One can only hope that the threat of legal action for unsolicited dick pics can dissuade some of the Peter Sheathers of the world to live up to their name before they hit "send."
