Judge orders man to write 144 nice things about his ex-girlfriend

Young said that he had "let go already" after he and the woman had broken up nearly nine months ago. He reportedly sent her dozens of offensive messages, which violated a protection order placed on February 22. That order was supposed to stop him from contacting his ex but instead he allegedly sent her 144 "nasty" text messages and calls, according to the Associated Press. But two months later, he called and texted her 144 times over the span of about three hours.

"You probably shouldn't get a phone, period", she proclaimed, though not as a legal ruling so much as an opinion.

After spending 157 days in jail, Young had gotten the message, said Deputy Public Defender Zach Raidmae.

In court, Young said he was sorry. "I hope she changed her number", the Circuit Court for the Second Circuit judge added.

A judge in Hawaii has handed down an unorthodox sentence to a man who pleaded no contest to contacting his ex-girlfriend, despite a violation order.

"She's going to get more than her horses got", Peters said. "I'm ready to move forward with my life, help my mom, who had a stroke".

That means that as part of Young's sentence, he has to write 144 positive things about the woman in 144 days. Subsequently, he was sentenced to the compliments, two years of probation, $2,400 in fines and 200 hours of community service.

"It's so childish to think a grown man can be so thumb-happy", Loo told Young.
