Fake British "Royal" Arrested Again For Having Sex With Child

This sounded familiar as I read it.

I mentioned the story at the beginning of the year. Seems like it was three years ago.

Anyway, a while ago I posted this:

Joshua Adam Gardner, 22, visited Stillwater Area High School three times in December and January, posing as "Caspian James Crichton- Stuart IV, the Fifth Duke of Cleveland" and telling students he was 17 and was interested in attending the school.

He also claimed to be 27th in line for the British throne.

"Becoming 'Caspian,' I was given respect," Gardner said in a jailhouse interview broadcast Monday on NBC's "Today." "And people ... don't look at you in that way that they would look at a sex offender."

"I didn't mean to hurt anybody," he said.

Reporters at the Stillwater school newspaper, the Pony Express, tought "Caspian's" story would be an interesting feature.

"He was demanding that we call him 'Your Grace,'" said Chantel Leonhart, one of the paper's managing editors. "He even demanded that the principal call him 'Your Grace.'"

...

However, his description of his British lineage didn't ring true to co-editor in chief Matt Murphy. Plus, he couldn't spell the name of the castle he claimed was his home, and the British consulate in Chicago told them there was no such title as the Duke of Cleveland.

Well, now the previously-convicted sex-offender, who keeps going after underage kids, has been charged again with sex with a minor. He's 22; the boy he stat-raped was 15.

A 22-year-old man who passed himself off as British royalty while visiting Stillwater High School last fall has now been charged with allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy several months earlier in Chanhassen.

...

Joshua Gardner, of Austin, claimed to be "Caspian James Crichton-Stuart IV, the Fifth Duke of Cleveland" while staying with a Stillwater family. He was exposed by the high school newspaper and arrested on a probation violation.

Carver County prosecutors allege in the latest charges that Gardner used the same fake identity to seduce the 15-year-old Chaska High School student.


...

Okay, I know that the violation of a fifteen year old boy isn't funny. But that doesn't mean that nothing associated with this can be funny.

You tell me. Is the last sentence of this funny or not?

The student came forward after seeing Jan. 12 media reports of Gardner's performance in Stillwater. He said he had had doubts about "Caspian's" identity, including why a duke was working at the Fuddruckers restaurant in Edina.

I'm just saying.
