Rutland county councillor charged over Facebook posts

This summer Richard Alderman from the 'Democracy Rutland' group won a county council by-election by the drawing of lots after he and the Liberal Democrat candidate polled an equal number of votes.

Less than a week later, he was arrested over some Facebook posts he had made.

Now, the Leicester Mercury reports, he has been charged with three counts of sending, by public communication network, an offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing message.
