Man challenges constitutionality of federal cyberstalking law

A man indicted for threats on Facebook is challenging the federal cyberstalking law on the grounds that the law makes free speech a crime and is vague and overbroad. The Pennsylvania man is charged with making a series of threats on Facebook after he was fired from his job at a theme park.
