An Englishman convicted of armed robbery has been sentenced to prison for eight years after robbing several businesses. Since being behind bars, he has taken to social media to brag about his life.

Andrew Little, 40, has been posting on Facebook with updates about his life in prison, publishing pictures of himself playing Playstation and making statuses about watching violent films such as “The Football Factory” and “Unforgiven.”

The Cheshire native has reportedly been using an illicit cellphone to post to the social media site, and has been making statuses about “chilling” and “living the dream,” according to The Mirror.

He even messaged a friend saying, “I’ve got 3 years left bt it flys in ere m8 [sic].”

Little even utilized social media to make fun of comedian Keith Harris’s death.

One anonymous individual spoke to reporters about their disgust with Little’s Facebook presence.

“He updates his Facebook page on a daily basis,” the person said, “ ... He states what a great time he is having in prison and if anyone wants to FaceTime him after 11pm.

“It is a disgrace that he is allowed to do this,” the person continued. “What about the people he put the fear of God into?”

Little was arrested after he robbed several stores with a silver air gun in August 2013. He demanded cash and cigarettes from the stores he hit.

He later admitted to three counts of robbery and three counts of possession of a firearm.

Officials have since been informed of Little’s illicit account.

A spokesperson for the prison said, “We have made clear that it is totally unacceptable for prisoners to access social networking sites or instruct others to do so on their behalf.

“No prisoner should be in any doubt that if they break the rules they will be stripped of their privileges and may be reported to the police for further action,” the spokesperson continued. “We have an agreement with Facebook to close down accounts being updated by or on behalf of serving prisoners.”
