A 30-year-old guy named Daren Young from Maui, Hawaii and his girlfriend broke up earlier this year, and she wound up getting a protection order against him in February.
But he violated it one night in May by texting her 144 times with NASTY messages.
Well . . . he was in court on Friday, and the judge came up with an unexpected punishment for him.
She sentenced him to have to write 144 NICE things to his ex-girlfriend, one for every nasty thing he said. Plus he has to pay a few fines and do some community service.
