Facebook posts mocking judge earn brothers two years in jail

Two brothers have been jailed for two years after mocking a judge on Facebook for handing them a suspended sentence for drug dealing.

Daniel Sledden, 27, and his younger brother Samuel, 22, from Accrington, Lancashire, were hauled back to court after the gloating messages were brought to the attention of Judge Beverley Lunt.

"Cannot believe my luck 2 year suspended sentance (sic) beats the 3 year jail yes pal! Beverly [sic] Lunt go suck my ****," Daniel wrote, just 40 minutes after escaping a jail term.
