A Bulgarian man has avoided prosecution and possible jail time because he is
no longer a Bulgarian man.
Sretko Ickov, who was arrested last year and charged with theft before being released on bail, had a sex change operation during the time he was out of police custody awaiting his day in court.
When he, excuse me, she, arrived in court as a woman using the name Albena Mihajlova, the judge ruled that under Bulgarian law the case could not go forward because the accused was not the same person who had originally been charged. Consequently, the case was dismissed, and the he she man woman thingie was allowed to walk out of court a free…something.
Before it left, it told the court that it had never felt happy as a man and planned to start a fresh crime free life as a woman. It also said that it had fallen in love and would be getting married shortly. I can’t help but wonder if it will be to
but somehow, given his track record, I doubt it.
