CRADLE OF FILTH T-Shirt Lands British Man In Court

Norfolk Eastern Daily Press is reporting that a British man who wore a heavy metal band T-shirt bearing an insulting picture and slogan pleaded guilty Monday (Jan. 31) to religiously aggravated offensive conduct.

Dale Wilson, 35, of Northfields, Norwich, was arrested by two police officers in The Avenues as he walked to a local newsagent to buy some tobacco on Halloween wearing a T-shirt promoting Ipswich band CRADLE OF FILTH.

The front of the T-shirt showed a sexual image of a nun while the back carried an extremely offensive reference to Jesus ("Jesus Is A Cunt").

He pleaded guilty to the charge and also admitted possession of a Stanley knife when he appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Monday.

Sentencing was adjourned for reports until March 11 and Judge Simon Barham warned him that all sentencing options would be open.

Wilson was given conditional bail pending the next hearing.
