I know little about professional footballers and their antics on or off the pitch but I do know a lot about defence solicitors and how they can pull an acquittal seemingly out of thin air. So I have taken my brain down old memory lane and think I've come up with a likely scenario that a certain footballer's brief can put forward in his defence.I definitely think it has legs
"Your Honour, my client was merely mistaken as it was his intention to use a prosthetic, whislt his wife was pregnant. His demise was due to nothing more than an unfortunate printing error and a mispronunciation, owing to a rather thick scouse accent".
Over the years I've seen loads of magistrates fall for far less.
