Drug dealer gets new sentence after offensive Facebook post about judge
Think before you post, people.
A drug dealer who received a lax sentence was ordered back to court after his vulgar Facebook post about the judge.
Daniel and Samuel Sledden were selling marijuana out of their home in Accrington, Lancashire, when the two were arrested. After admitting to supplying cannabis from May through September 2014, the brothers each received two-year prison sentences, suspended for two years.
Daniel, 27, promptly logged onto Facebook to taunt Judge Beverly Lunt.
Like everything on the Internet, the post quickly spread, and it wasn’t long before Judge Lunt called Daniel back to Burnley Crown Court for resentencing.
Soon after, Daniel removed his derogatory comment and replaced it with a more humble apologetic post.
But even then, Daniel couldn’t win. One commenter thought that the apology didn’t sound genuine, writing, “Can’t help but feel this status has been forced haha.”
