Santa Ana - A woman who created a phoney Facebook profile of her ex-boyfriend in order to frame the Southern California man for stalking has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Stephani Lawson of Las Vegas was sentenced on Wednesday after pleading guilty to perjury and false imprisonment.

City News Service says Lawson filed eight police reports alleging Parkervest made Facebook threats to kill her and her daughter and at one point held her in his car at knifepoint.
