A UNF student who was arrested for cyberstalking pled no contest earlier this month and was sentenced to 12 months probation.

Dylan Strickland was sentenced to a year of probation on Sept. 12. As a result, he can’t use social media, contact the victim who was also a UNF student or use her name or pictures in any way. In addition, he is required to get a psychiatric evaluation, take his prescribed medicines and seek follow up treatment if necessary. Strickland also has court fees totaling over $450 that he is required to pay before his probation is up.  

Strickland was arrested in May of this year after the victim found an Instagram and Tinder with pictures of her taken from her Facebook page, according to JSO. The accounts advertised sexual acts in exchange for gifts.

By entering a plea of “nolo contendere” the freshman computing major doesn’t not accept nor deny responsibility for the charges, but accepts the sentence. He has since been released from jail.
