(Newser) – In many ways, Justin Walker was a typical Facebook user who turned to the site to post gripes about everyday life and pictures of himself partying with his buddies. Problem was, Walker is serving 30 years in an Oklahoma jail for murdering a sheriff. Walker—a member of the Aryan Brotherhood gang—uploaded pics of himself posing with a home-made knife, a liquor bottle, a stash of marijuana, and the BlackBerry he used to post on Facebook.

Facebook has now disabled Walker's profile because officials pointed out that it's illegal to possess a cell phone in Oklahoma jails, ABC News reports. Walker has now been moved to a maximum-security prison and placed in a segregation unit. He may face extra jail time for contraband found in his cell, and a prison spokesman tells the Oklahoman he definitely "won't be posting anything to Facebook again any time soon."
