We have an update on the story we shared with you last week.
Wanted fugitive Jose Simms made a deal with the Torrington, Connecticut Police Department: if Simms got 15,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook, he would turn himself in.
He is wanted for seven counts of failure to appear in court.
Reactions to the Facebook deal ranged from feelings of patriotic duty to disgust.
One commentor asked if this was a joke, to which the Police Department replied “it is not a joke at all.”
Well it looks like Simms is the one laughing.
His Facebook post is now at 17,000 ‘likes’ but Simms has yet to turn himself in.
