Accused Says Drugs Not Cocaine But Something To Help His Erection

by | 26th, June 2009

pinocchioMAREK Cernay tells the High Court that the powder he bought is not cocaine but a drug to improve his sexual stamina.

Cernay, a Slovakian national, says he paid £25 for four bags of drugs – worth £6,000 -after telling a man at a Tesco’s supermarket in Coleraine, Co Londonderry, that he had trouble maintaining an erection.

“That male then produces these four bags of powder which are worth £6,000 and sells them to him for £25,” the prosecuting lawyer added.

According to police statements, Cernay told officers: “I have them for hard on.”

Mr Justice McLaughlin listens intently and decides that the story is good enough to be a “fairytale”.

Mr Justice McLaughlin sums up the wonder that “within minutes discussing his erectile dysfunction… to find this man mysteriously has the answer for £25”.

Refusing bail, the judge added: “This is another one for the book of fairytales, Mr Boyd, and it’s going to be a long book.”

Maybe he’s like an inverted Pinocchio, and should, allegedly, tell lies more often?
