Wasn’t Me Guv

Fake barrister flees court after judge’s questioning:

A man posing as a barrister fled a court in Devon when a senior judge became suspicious of him.

Judge Stephen Wildblood asked some basic legal questions which the man could not answer when he appeared before him at Plymouth Crown Court.

Judge Wildblood said he was suspicious because the man, who gave his name as David Evans, wore a barrister’s wig with a solicitor’s gown.

To think people said wigs and gowns had no use.
