Typically, inmates who are caught lose their good-behavior credits, but that minor punishment pales in comparison to the online praise they receive for showing off their jailhouse physiques. Did you know that there are convicted murderers, armed robbers and even child molesters serving time in jail while ‘friending’ you online?
While you may know most of the people on your friends list personally, I’m sure there are a few who got in on the merits of being a friend of a friend. That being said, some of these dudes could be gawking at your vacation photos right now as I type or… since several inmates have been bold enough to post photos from inside jail cells, you could be gawking at them too.

31 year old Derek Medina had a picture perfect life…. at least online.

He included a caption, which read: “RIP Jennifer Alfonso,” and the photo was ‘shared’ amongst his Facebook friends for more than four hours, before the account was finally suspended.
