MISLEADING HEADLINE OF THE DAY
"Movie Led Man to Strangle Lover" reads the headline. The actual story, however, is just a tiny bit different:
A MAN who said the movie, The Passion of the Christ, led him to confess to strangling his girlfriend was sentenced to 75 years in prison.Led him to strangle her, caused him to confess having strangled her, aw what's the difference anyway? (Thanks to Susanna at Cut on the Bias for noticing this).
Dan Leach II, 21, was sentenced yesterday after pleading guilty earlier in the week. He must serve half of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
