Michael Ruse, 21, initially pled not guilty to assault charges involving a 45-year-old man in Hampshire, England.
But an anonymous person who’s Facebook friends with Ruse printed out the update and delivered it to the court, forcing Ruse to change his plea to guilty.
Afterward, Ruse updated his Facebook status to call the case’s judge, Ian Pearson, “stuck up.”
In his ruling, Pearson ripped into Ruse. He said, “[Y]ou were stupid enough to put on Facebook what amounted to a full confession” and “your stupidity really is not much mitigation.”
Pearson sentenced Ruse to 46 weeks in prison, plus by six months of strict curfew.
During the trial, Ruse’s lawyer admitted his client “needs help with regards to thinking skills.”
And maybe a copy of Facebook for Dummies.
Heads will roll!! Since the crash of the Dana Air flight in Lagos, accusations have been flying left and right. Guilty conciense is a bitch. The management of Air Nigeria yesterday denied the negative stories and false information being circulated by the dismissed finance director of the airline, John Nnorom.
