Ask Jeeves
From Inachu on 17 March '03
In Manchester, England, in December, Thomas Clark, 30
(described by his lawyer as "intelligent" and "highly educated"
but spiraling into depression), was convicted in the stabbing
death of a 71-year-old man.

Among the evidence against him was the result of an Internet
search he had performed on his computer: "What sentence would I
get for stabbing somebody in an unprovoked attack?" (The
response, from the "Ask Jeeves" Web site, was not introduced as
evidence, but the correct answer, it turns out, is "life in
prison.") [Daily Telegraph (London), 12-20-02]
