JAILED: Jake “The Snake” Della-Vedova gets four months prison

vexnewsprideful Convicted blackmailer Jake “the Snake” Della-Vedova has been sentenced by Court Court judge Hannan to four months jail.

The judge sentenced him to eighteen months jail but suspended 14 months of it for two years.

She told the defendant “Your actions were in my view callous and calculated. This was no momentary lapse in judgement.”

The threats – mainly by SMS – were made over two days, escalated in their menacing tone until the arranged cash drop-off where Victoria Police filmed the exchange of cash for camera memory card and then arrested the surprised Jake. He soon made full admissions, although many suspect his explanation that he was able to find the identity of the victim – who cannot be named because of a ten year suppression order – through a Google search to be somewhat implausible.

  18. Dear Anon,

    I can confirm it is a snake but if you care to go ask your Mum how long and thick your arm was when you were about 2, then you’d be getting closer to the mark. Yes, it’s a real choker!
