Lying man from Wales - level 1

Lying man from Wales - level 1

29-10-2014 15:00

This news is about a man. He is from Wales. He takes £40,000 from an old person. The man must go to court, but he does not want to go. He tells people he is very ill. He says that he cannot move his legs or arms.

The man is a liar. Police find a security camera of him. In the video, he can walk and drive a car. Police show the video to the man. He says that he is guilty.

Difficult words: court (the place where they say if you are guilty of something), liar (a person who tells things which are not true), guilty (admit you did something wrong).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

How would you punish the man?
