When we think of British judges, we think of wigs. But now, thanks to our latest Judge of the Day, we may start associating them with Calvin Klein briefs.
From the Daily Record:
A SENIOR judge yesterday showed a court his Calvin Klein pants as he denied twice flashing at a woman on a train.
Lord Justice Richards, 56, held up his trendy black briefs as he began his defence of charges that he opened his trousers to show his penis.
He told David Fisher QC, defending, he would need to use both hands to open his underwear enough to expose himself. He added: “That is the natural way of doing it.”
“Whether one could do it with one hand I don’t know, it is not something I do. For a man, it is natural to use two hands to assist in removing one’s penis.”
Oh how we love those Brits. They manage to sound so dignified and proper, even whilst discussing allegations of indecent exposure:
The Court of Appeal judge, also known as Sir Stephen Richards, denies claims by the 23-year-old PR worker of “boxing her in” and flashing at her on a London train on October 16 and 24 last year.
Yesterday, Mr Fisher asked him: “Did you expose your penis to the victim whilst travelling on a crowded commuter train?”
Richards replied: “I most certainly did not.”
He was then asked: “Why would you not expose your penis?”
And when did you stop beating your
We don’t know anything about his jurisprudence. But the judge may suffer from a lack of imagination in the sex department:
[Lord Justice Richards] laughed before telling City of Westminster Magistrates Court: “I have no desire to engage in such behaviour. I’m a happily married family man. I can’t perceive any form of gratification from exposing my penis as alleged.”
