Belgium sends dead man to jail

Weekend at Bernies...the Belgium version.
In another one of those only in Belgium stories, A Belgian judge sent him to jail, but fined him too, for good measure.

A MAN has been sentenced to eights months behind bars for beating up his girlfriend and resisting arrest - despite being dead.
Belgian Joey Van den Broeck, 21, was charged, but he subsequently died in hospital in Antwerp after a road crash in Merksem, reports GVA.
The clueless judge went ahead without him. Besides jail, Van den Broeck also copped a $900 fine.
