Man who urinated on dying woman for YouTube glory jailed

Outraging public decency

Protecting against web application threats using SSL

A man who shouted "This is YouTube material" as he pissed on a dying, disabled woman has been sent to jail for three years.

Anthony Anderson, 27, had been smoking cannabis and drinking heavily with friends, when he found Christine Lakinski, 50, collapsed in a doorway in Hartlepool, in northern England.

Calling her a "smackhead", Anderson threw a bucket of water over her. He then urinated on the comatose woman and sprayed her with shaving foam, as his friends watched and laughed. The incident was captured for posterity on a camera phone. Anderson then went a night club, as you do.

Lakinski died at the scene of pancreatic failure. She had curvature of the spine and learning difficulties and suffered bullying all her life, according to reports.

Anderson pleaded guilty to "outraging public decency". ®
