(Scroll down for video) A woman was found guilty of defamation after writing on Facebook that her neighbor is a pedophile, according to court documents in Canada.

Katherine Van Nes of British Columbia, was ordered to pay $67,500 to her neighbor Douglas Pritchard, who is a music teacher at a middle school, after she wrote on Facebook that he is a pedophile.

The court heard that the neighbors began to fight after Pritchard told Van Nes to shut down her newly built water fountain because it made too much noise during the night and it disrupted his wife’s sleep.

Van Nes ignored his request. Pritchard and his wife were advised to install security cameras on the property to document their neighbor’s unruly behavior.

When Van Nes saw the cameras she wrote on Facebook that Pritchard is a pedophile who uses cameras to spy on children.

A member of the community saw the Facebook post and told the principal of the school where Pritchard worked. The court heard that the accusation destroyed the reputation and career of the teacher.

Van Nes was ordered to give Pritchard $50,000 in general damages, $15,000 in punitive damages and $2,500 for making too much noise at night.

The judge also ordered Van Nes to turn off the water fountain between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.

A homeless man who was allowed to live inside a bakery because he saved the owner’s life, was kicked out after he invited his homeless friends over to drink alcoholic beverages with him late at night.

62-year-old Michel Flamant of Jura, France, said that he had a change of heart and decided to kick out Jerome Aucant from his store.

Last week, Flamant nearly died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Luckily, Aucant noticed the baker wobbling around and went in the store to save him. In response, Flamant promised to sell the bakery to the homeless man for $1.00 and handed him over a set of keys.

One day, Flamant came to the bakery around 11:00 p.m., and noticed that Aucant had set up a bar and was drinking alcoholic beverages with a group of homeless friends.

Flamant also accused Aucant of abusing a female journalist who asked questions about taking over the bakery.

Flamant told him that this was not part of their deal, but in response, Aucant began insulting him so he decided to kick him out.

Flamant wanted to give the homeless man a chance since he has saved his life, but it appears that Aucant was just not interested.
