Sam Busby who posted vile comments about April Jones on Facebook spared jail sentence

Latest news on missing April Jones is that the teenager Sam Busby, who had posted vile comments about missing April Jones on Facebook, has been given a six-week suspended jail sentence and ordered to pay £185 court costs.

Yesterday, the Worcester Magistrates’ Court also ordered the Macintyre Road resident to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work and gave Sam Busby a curfew, owing to the distress caused by his comments to the missing April Jones’ family.

Sam Busby told the court that he had deleted the April Jones Facebook comments shortly after posting the sexually explicit comments in October. Sam Busby had posted that he had carried out sexual acts on the body of missing April Jones. The 18-year-old’s first insensitive comment about April Jones who is yet to be found, said, ”All these April Jones jokes are getting old, unlike her.”

It was during a major search operation in Wales that was undertaken to find the missing April Jones, that Busby’s first offensive comment appeared online, published to anyone who came across his page, which provoked a response from one of his online friends, who suggested his comments were “too soon”. Then came the second post which was sexually explicit in nature.

Meanwhile, no update on April Jones as the five-year-old Welsh schoolgirl remains missing since October 1, when she was kidnapped near her home in the town of Machynlleth. Mark Bridger, the 46-year-old relative of April Jones, remains in custody charged with her abduction, murder and perverting the course of justice, while April Jones remains missing.
