What you say online could get you in real trouble at work. A federal prosecutor is taking heat for things he posted anonymously on a news website, including comments about his continuing cases.

The prosecutor used a fake name, but, GovExec reports, investigators found him out.

Debra Roth, partner at Shaw, Bransford and Roth, joined The Federal Drive with Tom Temin. for our Legal Loop to explain the case and the rules for what you can say online.
