Busted In Bali. In 1985 Australian businessman Chris Parnell was arrested and accused of smuggling twelve kilos of hashish in Bali , Indonesia. To avoid going to court and a possible death sentence, he feigned madness, and was locked up in a mental hospital. An early escape attempt ended in disaster when he crashed through a roof into a secure lunatic asylum. After this he stood trail and was sentenced to life in prison. Determined to prove his innocence, he made a further daring escape attempt disguised as a woman, but was recaptured. He spent the next eleven years in a spiraling prison nightmare which in culminated in him being declared dead in a prison mortuary. Following pressure from the Australian government, Chris was granted a Presidential pardon and was released on 26th September 1996.
