Court rejects malicious e-mailer's Papal bull
Comment Email Print
¬†A man accused of sending malicious emails has landed himself in further trouble by invoking no less than His Holiness the Pope as a character witness, the Telegraph reports. Julian Evans, 28, of Monmouth, south Wales, found himself hauled before Merthyr Tydfil magistrates on a charge of sending abusive messages to the local T-Mobile call centre after the firm refused him a job. A pretty minor offence, some T-Mobile users might claim, but Evans obviously believed the beak intended to hand down some hard time. In a desperate bid for leniency, Evans produced the following character reference: My dear friends in Christ, I regret that we have been unable to protect the Church from this scandal in the case of Julian Evans. We are obliged to support Julian Evans and we have done throughout these troubled times. Julian has given an immense amount of spiritual, human and social good for the welfare of the Church and humanity. Yours in Christ, Pope John Paul. Sadly, this brilliant plan fell apart when the Crown Prosecution Service revealed that Evans had bought the fake commendation on the internet for £50. He now faces sentencing for both sending malicious emails and perverting the course of justice. He will attend court next month to discover his fate. Source: Diocese of Portsmouth
