You Can't Make This Shit Up!

Wake Up Asshole!
"I Was Sleepwalking"...
I'm a huge fan of parody and sarcasm and the posts exist on this blog to prove it. But - in my most alcohol inspired ramblings and musings I could never come close to this fantasy. Only from the mind of a lawyer could a ridiculous story such as this emerge. From the Sideshow via Yahoo comes this report...

"A Connecticut man accused of robbing an 81-year-old woman outside a casino at knifepoint says he was sleepwalking and has no memory of the alleged incident."

"An attorney for Winston A. Riley says he will enter a "medical defense" for his client, the Norwich Bulletin reports. 27-year-old Riley was arrested back on the morning of March 18 when the elderly woman said he pulled a large knife on her and demanded her purse while the two were riding a parking garage elevator at the Mohegan Sun casino in New London."

And lawyers wonder why they're the "butt" of so many jokes. I would love to be in the courtroom when this case is presented in front of a judge. The laughter will be deafening. Or will it?
