Scott Henry!!!!!!!!! Let’s give a round of applause to Scott Henry folks. Mr. Henry has just walked away the winner of this year’s “Most Stupid Person Award”.
The 23 year old Devon resident was implicated in a robbery in which he and 2 accomplices stole a safe with over £6,000 from a resort nightclub. He was sentenced to 140 hours of unpaid community service for the crime. Instead of making good on what I consider a rather lenient sentence (I mean, some countries institute harsh punishments such as severing a limb for crimes of theft), Henry instead hopped on a plane to Las Vegas to participate in the World Series of Poker (WSOP).
When he did not report in for the work session, the probation board contacted his home, only to be told by his mother that he went to get a haircut before his Vegas trip. When he stood before Recorder Abbott for a breach of the community order work requirement, he was chastised as having no regard for the law and was further told that “if there was a sentence for stupidity you would be serving life imprisonment.”
Henry’s defense lawyer, explaining why he had made such a poor choice in judgement, said that gambling online had always intrigued Henry and he wanted to make his fortune by doing so. However, his plans of fame and fortune did nothing to his pocket and instead landed him a 3-month (all expense paid) trip in jail.
If flying to Vegas to play in the WSOP isn’t in your travelling schedule or within your budget, enjoy Texas Hold ‘Em and other exciting Poker games online at Titan Poker.
