Bad Magician Invades Dreams of Criminal

 

Back in the Day When Hypnos Just Made You Look Dumb

The Evening Times of Scotland reports on the dangerous side-effects of magic in today’s edition.

The High Court in Glasgow, Scotland, accepted testimony from a criminal defendant in an assault case.

The defendant, Andrew Sim, told psychiatrists he was influenced by a magician named “Ray” and instructed to shoot a shopkeeper with a longbow.

Ray would visit while Mr. Sim was sleeping to talk with him, ask questions, and give instructions.

Ray told Mr. Sim to attack the shopkeeper of the Supersave Store in Loch Loyal, Scotland.

Mr. Sim followed the instructions after awakening, shot the victim in the hip with an arrow, gouged his eyes and threatened to kill him. The victim survived the attack.

Mr. Sim told the court he believed the victim was some how involved with the magician/hypnotist Ray. Mr. Sim related how he told Ray he would attack the victim if Ray continued to talk to him in his sleep.

Ray apparently told Mr. Sim that unless he attacked the shopkeeper, or acted as if he did not understand the instructions given, “his ex-wife was brought in and men had sex with her.”

The court heard the testimony and ruled Mr. Sim is unfit to enter a plea to the offense. Further hearings are expected.
