Who would have known that a random Facebook status could turn out to be the perfect alibi to take you out of trouble with the law? At least this is something that Rodney Bradford can attest to.
His simple Facebook status, ‘where’s my pancakes’ which he typed on Saturday 17th of October at 11.49 a.m was literally his passport to freedom. The 19 year old man was arrested the following day since he was considered a suspect in a robbery but his defense lawyer managed to prove that at the time of the robbery, the young man was actually at his father’s apartment in Harlem.
The Facebook entry proves that he was at home, on his computer and once this entry was checked by the district attorney, charges were dropped against him since he had a solid alibi-a Facebook alibi.
