A Queensland, Australia firefighter is facing criminal charges over a Facebook scandal involving a “straw poll” where firefighters rated which female coworkers would be best in bed.
Jon Wreford, 33, was charged by police on October 12 with using the internet to “menace, harass or cause offence”. The offense carries a maximum penalty of three years in prison. He is scheduled to appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court on November 6.
The Facebook “straw poll” scandal is one of several bullying and harassment scandals facing the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services. Another involved the portrayal of female officers as well known people ranging from supermodel Elle McPherson to Adolph Hitler.
Wreford has been suspended from Queensland Fire and Emergency Services. More on the story.
