Soldier jailed after lying to play poker

June 30, 2009

A soldier named Lee Wittekind has just been jailed and kicked out of the Army after he lied saying that his fiancée had been killed so that he could be granted paid leave. The real reason for the leave vacation was that he could play poker! Wittekind had been given sympathetic leave from his army bosses after telling them that his fiancée had been run over and killed.

The manipulative 31 year old soldier went as far as making contact with some anguished parents of a dead girl. He had never even met them or her but still begged the parents to back up his lie and terrible story. His colleagues realised that he was planning to take part in a pub poker game and told their army officers who followed to inform the police authorities.
