Imponderable #84: Ottawa Ontario

Dad used to call this The Bart Simpson Defense.


And of course, my favorite Homer excuse: I thought the policewoman was a prostitute.

I guess the only thing that comes to mind is how did his defense attorney present his case with a straight face?

The question is Imponderable.

I take it back, we’re talking about a lawyer. I’m sure he had no problem.

    Down here a guy tried something like that (not as outrageous) and was acquitted by the jury. The reason? His lawyer somehow got his client’s criminal rap sheet record suppressed so the jury thought the guy had been living a blameless life and believed that he was a victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was an outcry to change the law after the guy promptly went on a crime spree after being let out.
