Ankara - Turkish authorities have decided to charge Sarah Ferguson with gross voyeurism for her illicit filming of orphan minors.
The offence carries a maximum of 22 years on conviction - roughly the same time she's been divorced from Prince Andrew.
Judicial sources in Ankara said tonight that the heavily disguised freeloading self publicist 'filmed scenes of children tied to their beds and left in cots all day' in a 2008 ex-po-say for the ITV Tonight show.
It proved a scam too far for the Turkish Establishment which reckoned the Duchess 'had been paid to railroad Turkey's EU ambitions' with what's been dubbed as a deliberate smear campaign.
A spokesperson for UK Legal Aid said Sarah's application would be considered on merit amid unconfirmed rumors about an extradition request being submitted to British police.
But Turkey can expect to have a fight on their hands as the redhead's lawyers probe the 'Gary McKinnon' plea to prevent Sarah being manacled onto a Turkey flight to face the wrath of draconian Turkish courts.
"This could be a tragic undoing for such a fragile, borderline personality," Royal Freak Hospital shrink Prof Einstein Flintstone twittered from his ivory tower tonight.
The Earl of Wessex is terminally pissed.
