The case began when a woman told Loveland police in December 2007 about postings made about her between November and December 2007. Court records show posts that suggested she traded sexual acts for legal services from her attorney and mentioned a visit from child services because of an injury to her child.
Police obtained search warrants for records from Web sites including Craigslist before identifying Weichel as the suspect. Weichel shares a child with the woman.
Weichel, confronted by detectives at his workplace in August, said he was "just venting," according to court records.

Pretty scary- very slippery slope imo.When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there. - George Harrison

"Court records show posts that suggested she traded sexual acts for legal services from her attorney...."
That's probably a big factor in this becoming a court case.
"The statute allows prosecution for speech "tending to blacken the memory of one who is dead" or to "expose the natural defects of one who is alive, and thereby to expose him to public hatred, contempt or ridicule."
That is interesting. Wonder what's considered a natural defect? And how individualized it can be?
