Serena Kozakura bra breast boob tit Above the Law blog.jpgWe tend to focus more on domestic legal news, but every now and then, we’ll make an exception. From the AFP:

A Japanese pin-up model says that her big breasts have not only boosted her career — they also helped her overturn a court verdict.

The bikini model, who goes by her professional name Serena Kozakura, was cleared after a court decided she was too well-endowed to squeeze into a room through a hole, as she had been found guilty of earlier…. Kozakura, 38, was convicted last year of property destruction after a man said she kicked in the wooden door of his room and crawled inside, apparently because he was with another woman. Kozakura had said the man made the hole himself.

In her appeal, the defence counsel held up a plate showing the size of the hole and said that she could not squeeze through with her 110-centimetre (44-inch) bust….Tokyo High Court presiding judge Kunio Harada agreed and threw out the guilty verdict on Monday, saying there was reasonable doubt over the man’s account.

In the words of one headline writer, “The Best Defense is a Breast Defense”

“The judges were very good-mannered as they showed no expressions on their faces. I guess they’re well-trained,” Kozakura said.

Or maybe they were just… distracted. Do appellate judges have a weakness for well-endowed women? See also the late Anna Nicole Smith, who prevailed before the U.S. Supreme Court in Marshall v. Marshall (unanimous decision).
You can access a video of Ms. Kozakura demonstrating her inability to fit through the hole via Weird Asia News. The video appears at the end of the post (but before the comments); scroll to around the 3:40 mark.

    My favorite part of the AFP story:
    “The case was splashed through the Japanese media on Tuesday, with the Asahi network even inviting her to demonstrate how she could not fit through the opening.”

    While some doctors say that breast enhancement offers increased self-confidence, the opportunity to look better in a bathing suit and to increase your overall level of sexual attraction, I recommend breast enhancement for other reasons.
    That’s right, you might not believe it but your increased bust can save you from jail time.

    I like this – a real human interest story.
    I remember a scene from one of those softcore porns they used to have at Blockbuster (always stealthily beneath a couple of mainstream titles at checkout) that resembles the story here.
