What I heard was that some one informed the police as to what he had done, that's how they caught him. When they arrested him, he must off told them he was guilty as typing things on forums can not be used as evidence. He could be lying to show off doesnt mean he had done it!
IE: I did over 200MPH today in a 20MPH school road, I wasnt wearing a seat belt and I had been to the pub for a good few hours before hand
Saying it on a forum doesnt mean it actually happened.
They broke the law and thought they were smart, but when it came down to it they must have panicked and squealed like little pigs when the police came knocking at the door.
What you type in a forum can be used against you as evidence if there is substantial evidence of the physical crime alongside what he said or boasted about!!! If they had other evidence alongside what he said then you can get done no probs!! Obviously they were wella fter this guy!!!
i got caught and fined for talking about something i had done on a forum. It was a football forum and stupidly talked about playing as a ringer for another local team after our season had finished. The football league read the forum, and called us in for a disciplinary meeting, and fined me a wallet cringing £10. I was gutted and contemplated appealing, but decided to accept my punishment and not do it again. (or at least not talk about it again)

But how can it be proved that you are who you say you are on a forum? By that way of thinking i could register as Michael Jackson and say "i like abusing boys" and get him done for it.

My girlfriend posted it when we split up
I was bosting because I have no friends and I drive a beemer and wanted people to like me.
Shouldn't you be doing real police work like catching rapists and muggers ect and not surfing chat rooms and forums?
Whatever is said on forums, e-mails and faxes cannot be classed as evidence as they are all too easily forged and therefore are dismissable. This guy squeeled like a pig and i bet his missus was a bit hacked with taking the wrap and told them the truth as well.
Its a jam thing
Haec credam a deo pio, a deo justo, a deo scito?
You wood have to use that as ur defense and courts wood need 2 prove it was u!! could go either way!!
U wouldn't get a conviction on just forum, email or fax on their own there wood need 2 b other stuff along with it!! have seen it done !!!
Surf rooms and chat rooms r only surfed when complaint is made or evidence is passed on, so it needs to b followed up!! It isn't done just for the hell of it!! Somebodys had it in for this guy!!
