‘This was a shameful crime,’ said Justice Neville Norbury, jailing a prince for kissing a young girl, who had been in a coma for more than 15 years following an industrial injury involving spinning machinery. The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, regained consciousness immediately after the assault.
‘The girl’s coincidental arousal from her coma is no mitigation,’ continued the judge. ‘Indeed, the fact that she was not yet 16 and clearly has mental health issues, since she claims to want to marry him, makes the offence all the more despicable.’
The prince may also face even more serious charges of vandalising a Site of Special Scientific Interest, breaking and entering a listed building and killing a protected species of dragon. At present, he is reported to be in the showers at HMP Belmarsh, where he has been told that ‘he’s behind you’.
