The man who falsely accused X Factor judge Louis Walsh of groping him in a nightclub has been jailed for six months.Wow! Compare the usually incredibly lax response to such claims here!
Leonard Watters, 24, pleaded guilty to making two false reports to Irish police that the pop music mogul sexually assaulted him in Dublin nightspot Krystle last April.
Pleading for a non-custodial sentence, Watters' solicitor, Cahir O'Higgins, said his client was a tragic figure whose life had been a litany of disasters from an early age.I see ‘mitigation’s’ the same, though…
Passing sentence, Judge Dermot Dempsey immediately granted Watters bail to appeal against the decision, on condition that he lodged 100 euro (£83.50) in cash with the court.Can you imagine that being said about the usual inadequate or spiteful chavette who makes a false rape claim?
Watters was now a laughing stock and a joke, and had been treated as a pariah in his own community, he told the court.
"For ever and a day, he will be known as the guy who accused Louis Walsh in the wrong," he said.
No, me neither.
