Pugh also faces three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, punishable by up to 15 years in prison."Despite what the defendant has meant to the city in the past, and the positive work he did here, we cannot and will not turn a blind eye to these alleged facts," Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a news release.
In February 2010, another Facebook hoax page was created to protest the purported impending monthly charge, that time said to be a monthly $3.99 fee that would begin on 9 July 2010.
The claim that Facebook would be initiating user charges was but the bait to lure people to the protest page and its hidden malicious payload; there are no plans afoot to require payment from those who use the site.
Those who attempted to exempt themselves from the charge thereby spread the lie even further, thus doing the leg work of the hoaxsters.

During his 2015 sexual grooming trial — a civil case that ended with a jury awarding Pugh's accuser 0,000 — Pugh convinced a federal judge to ban the use of the word pedophile, defined as having an erotic attraction to prepubescent children, at trial. Pugh, 44, who now lives in New York City, was arrested Thursday morning and will be extradited to Detroit to face charges for a crime he has previously adamantly denied: having sex with underage youth.FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP.
