    Man jailed for wearing fake Rolex watch

    A Belgian man has been jailed for six months for wearing a fake Rolex . A court in Dendermonde heard that the man, named only as Gunther R, 33, had been spotted by representatives of Rolex wearing the fake watch and they complained to authorities.

    The judge ruled the man had knowingly bought the fake and sentenced him to six months in prison under laws for handling counterfeit goods.

    And they didn't try to get the person selling the fake ones?

    I find the 1000 euro fine to be reasonable but the jail time excessive, especially considering that this very judge sentenced two men to only four years for drugs trafficking. And, the city recently handed sentences of only four years for prolonged child abuse and a mere three years for pimping prostitutes.
