Man convicted of vandalizing church
BBC |
"A 19-year-old student who was high on drugs when he desecrated a pensioner's coffin as it lay in church has been given a two-year suspended jail sentence. Barry Gamble broke into St Agnes's Catholic church on the Andersonstown Road in Belfast in September 2002 and threw Maureen Melly's coffin to the ground. He also tore crosses from the casket and the confessional box, broke a window and smeared excrement around the Sacristy, Belfast Crown Court was told on Monday... A prosecution lawyer told the court that the smearing of excrement around the Sacristy had outraged and appalled the community."
