In a strange turn of events the Easter Bunny, a known Jehovah's Witness, arrested with his brother yesterday on a charge of 'running amock in an Elementary School' has entered a 'not guilty' plea on his own behalf.
He has appealed to the court for leniency saying that he was forced by his parents to attend services at Kingdom Hall and was forced to accompany them on their Witnessing on Saturday mornings.
He went on to say that he was so embarrassed knocking on doors because many times they were the doors of his classmates' families and this resulted in much teasing and bullying at school.
A court appointed psychiatrist has suggested that The Easter Bunny (as he is now known as a result of him being only 15 years of age and thereby being anonymous in the eyes of the law) has been 'brainwashed' by he cult he was born into, and is, therefore, not deemed to be responsible for his actions.
A plea of 'insanity' is expected to be used in his defense and that of his brother, who, himself, suffers from the same form of bullying at school.
