Michael Shrimpton is a British barrister and self-proclaimed expert on British intelligence. He made a false report of an imminent terrorist attack at the London Olympics, and was found guilty by a court this past November of “communicating false information” says The Daily Mail newspaper. Sentencing is scheduled for February, but before that Judge Alistair McCreath QC wants Shrimpton examined:
The sentence that I pass upon you will have to reflect that gravity of the conduct of which you have been convicted.
But if, as may be the case, there is some underlying reason for it, then it seems to me important that I be informed of that underlying reason and I am therefore minded to order that you undergo psychiatric examination.
Shrimpton made waves on this side of the pond with his claims that Barack Obama is not the son of Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr. He determined this from the lack of a reply from the CIA.
It appears that the psychiatric examination did not take place.
