A 36-year-old Racine man who broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home to unblock himself on her Facebook account was sentenced Thursday to two years’ supervised probation and $310 in fines.

Larry Lee Felt was convicted of two gross misdemeanor counts of stalking.

A Mower County Sheriff’s deputy arrested Felt in April 2012 after a woman accused him of breaking into her home, according to a court complaint.

The victim told police she could tell Felt went into her house when she noticed several lights on and a door unlocked after she came back from vacation, even though she had shut off her lights and locked all doors before she left.

Felt allegedly went onto her computer, unblocked himself on her Facebook account and left a note on her Facebook page from his phone, according to the complaint. Felt told police he went to the victim’s home but didn’t break in or damage anything, nor did he turn on any lights or electronics.
