Ian Puddick: Charged With Harassment Of Wife Leena Puddick's Former Lover

In 2009, Ian Puddick, 41, of Enfield, London, discovered that his wife was having an affair with her boss, Timothy Haynes, after reading a sexually explicit text message on her cell phone, which was accompanied by a photograph of a sex act.

Puddick decided to take action against Haynes using a host of social networking Websites, including Facebook and Twitter, to describe the lurid details of his wife's affair with Haynes, employing tweets and blogs, and was charged with a "campaign of harassment" against his wife's former lover as a result. Last week, the charges were dismissed by a judge and Mr. Puddick's name was cleared.
