A tale from the Court by raistlin

A trial was due to take place this morning, of a defendant whp had pleaded not guilty to driving whilst disqualified.

He didn't answer to his bail and so we considered running the trial in absentia.

However, his brief told us he had the chap's mobile number and would contact him as he probably was not familiar with the public transport network.

This we allowed as we had some other admin to do in the meantime.

The brief returned a short while later and told us that the defendant's phone had not been answered but he'd been able to leave a voice mail message.

With our further indulgence, he left his phone on his desk in the hope that his client would call in the near future.

Indeed, within about five minutes the phone rang and the brief answered it on loudspeaker so we could hear what was said as to the non arrival.

The defendant said:-

"Sorry I didn't answer your call Mr. Hughes, but I didn't want to get pulled over for using a mobile phone whilst driving."

Eventually he arrived at Court, and, mirabile dictu, changed his plea to guilty.

Oh, he now has a certain regard Paul.

He didn't leave the Court by the same door he came in.
