User Marduk in our forums spotted this one, pretty hilarious to be honest. A 13-year-old boy from Texas who stole his father's credit card and hired two prostitutes has been convicted of fraud.
Newark teenager Ralph Hardy confessed to ordering an extra credit card from his dad's existing credit card company and taking his pals on a US$30,000 spending spree, which culminated in them playing "Halo" on an Xbox with the hookers in a Texas motel. The $1000-a-night prostitutes were released without charge but Ralph was given a three year community order upon his conviction on May 9, money.co.uk reported. The prostitutes told police they grew suspicious when the kids said they'd rather play Xbox than play with them.
Authorities were alerted to the motel by a delivery clerk who, after delivering supplies of Dr Pepper, Oreos and Fritos, was asked by the kids where they could hire some escorts. They young lotharios explained they'd just won big at a "World of Warcraft" tournament and wanted to relax.
The delivery clerk called the police who arrived to find $3,000 in cash, electronic gadgets, an Xbox console and games, plus the two prostitutes. Ralph reportedly told the oficers his dad wouldn't mind, because he'd turned 13 the previous week and he'd forgot to get him a present.
Ralph and Co. told the working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus. They added that State law did not allow discrimination against the disabled so they had no right to refuse them.
Explaining why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the done thing when you win a "World of Warcraft" contest.
The prostitutes ended up playing "Halo" with the kids instead of having sex with them.
