Hate hoaxers are advised not to ply their trade in Australia. Turns out you can actually get in trouble for it there, even if you are the Dean of Science at the University of Technology Sydney, as environmental chemist and toxicologist Dianne Jolley has learned.
Professor Jolley was apparently less than jolly about a degree program in Chinese medicine getting canceled. In protest, she wrote herself some threatening letters and reported clothes stolen from her backyard.
As a result of the claimed harassment, significant security measures were implemented on Professor Jolley’s behalf and an investigation was launched by officers from Sydney City police.
On November 15 Professor Jolley was arrested at the UTS campus and charged with obtaining a financial advantage by deception, giving false information about a person or property in danger, and making false representations resulting in a police investigation.
Good thing for Jussie Smollett they don’t treat hoaxers that way in Chicago.
Please welcome Dianne Jolley to the Hate Hoax List.
