The former state judge from Galveston 43 was arrested and charged with two counts of online harassment for allegedly placing fake online ads using two former girlfriends' Facebook photos.
The creator of the ad masked his identity by using Internet services in Germany and Venezuela, the complaint said. Sheriff's investigator Scott Hardcastle subpoenaed backpage.com for the user name used to create the web pages, Don Tequilla. The name was traced to the ex judge Dupuy, the complaint said.
Threats, slurs, and posting someone's personal information, or photos without their consent is not protected speech meaning those things are not covered under freedom of speech. The courts have been very clear on that. Speech used as part of a crime is not covered by freedom of speech. Harassment is a crime.
Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the USA and New Zealand are both a party to states
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
