Stupid Criminal of the week: The scientist, the model and the cocaine

An acclaimed British scientist who was caught smuggling two kilos of cocaine has been jailed for almost five years.

Professor Paul Frampton, 68, said he was duped into carrying the drugs in a honeytrap sting involving a bikini model.

Finding him guilty of delusional stupidity as well as drug running the judge sentenced the Oxford-educated academic to four years and eight months in prison.

The divorced physicist told police he had been tricked into carrying the drugs by gangsters who posed on the internet as 32-year-old glamour model Denise Milani.

Following his arrest, he told a newspaper: “Perhaps I should have realised earlier but the fraudster was very good and very intelligent. For 11 weeks I thought I was chatting with an attractive woman.”

Did her deserve such a harsh sentence? Look at the picture below and decide for yourselves …
