Man May Be Sent Back To Jail For A Facebook Post

Ohio resident Ryan C. Fye was sentenced to three years in prison for aggravated vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. He was released from prison on early release after spending only seven months in jail. However, due to a recent Facebook post, he may be going back.

After being released from prison Fye posted a photo on Facebook with the message: “Prison didnt break me. It MADE me. Im free. Im a new man. Dont come at me like before. Yes im skinny and muscular now. 7 months of working out everyday. Love my real friends an fam. Shout outs to my fam behind bars. Ill see ya when youre time is near! Miss you brothers!”

Fye was in prison for his role in the death of William Fekete, 22. In March 2013, Fye was driving 60 miles per hour in a 20 mile per hour zone when he drove off the road and hit a tree. Fekete was a passenger in the car and died of his injuries. Fye was 20 years old at the time.

Now 22, Fye is waiting for a hearing scheduled for January 15 to determine whether he has to serve the remainder of his sentence. Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Richard McMonagle did not like the message or the photo that Fye posted to Facebook, saying that it was disrespectful to the family of the deceased Fekete and that it violated his parole.

Judge McMonagle retired at the end of 2014, meaning that a different judge will preside over Fye’s hearing.
