6 month suspended sentence for sending 16 derogatory messages

    This is such a non-story that I couldn't even find a link to a news article about it. It was in the news this week that a man was served a 6 month suspended sentence for sending 16 messages to a politician, some containing pornographic content.

    The politician claimed she took the case on behalf of all women who experience "unwanted advances" and such.

    While I don't disagree that it is highly unusual to send people pornographic images - it is absolutely disgraceful that any judge would entertain a case that involved just 16 messages whether pornographic or not.

    The world, and legal system in particular has turned into a complete clown house.
