Earlier this month, I blogged about a Massachusetts witch hunt involving Barbara Asher (aka “Mistress Lauren M”). Yesterday, it turns out she was acquitted. Maybe there’s still hope for our justice system, after all.
One thing is for certain, though: Robert Nelson, the prosecutor, is a stupid gimp. See?
During his closing argument to the jury, prosecutor Robert Nelson put on a black leather mask with a zippered mouth opening and re-enacted the bondage session.
With both hands, he reached back and clutched the top of a blackboard as if strapped to the rack. Then he hung his head as if dead.
Asher’s lawyer objected, and the judge agreed.
“That’s enough Mr. Nelson,” Judge Charles Grabau said. “Thank you for your demonstration.”
