Jack Thompson, the thorn in the gaming industry’s side, was found guilty of between 27 and 31 charges yesterday. The Judge’s recommended guilty verdicts include, “knowingly making a false statement of material fact or law to a tribunal,” “using means that have no purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden a third person,” “engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation,” and “making statements that the lawyer knows to be false or with reckless disregard as to the truth or falsity concerning to the qualifications or integrity of a judge.”
And that’s not even taking into account that he used gay porn in his court filings, and a picture book of swastikas, squirrels and fingerpaintings in his defense.
In his closing statement he quoted from the bible that “it would be better that a millstone be tied around your neck and that you be cast in the uttermost depths of the sea.” Dude you’re the one who’s gone overboard.
Justice has begun to be served.
