The Austrian Times:
A teenage vandal felt so guilty after trashing a church that he went to confession in the church before turning himself into police in Katsdorf, Upper Austria.
The 17-year-old went to the priest on Sunday morning to confess that he and a friend had broke into the church the night before and vandalised the church, breaking windows and smashing furniture and holy symbols.
After confessing to the priest, the 17-year-old and his accomplice turned themselves in to the police.
The pair claim they completely flipped out after getting into a row with guests in a pub.
They went to the church and in their rage kicked over the old baptism font, which was built in 1645 and then damaged some of the benches.
They also destroyed some of the wall surrounding the church and took some of the stones and threw them through the church windows breaking thirteen windows.
