Yes, you can be too drunk to be found guilty

WPC went nicking at the local Casino, got found out and was, in 40 minutes, found not guilty because they decided she was too pissed to knowingly nick something, even though she went out of her way to steal and hide personal possessions

Woop woop! Floodgates could open. Woop woop!

A former policewoman has been cleared of stealing a mobile phone from a casino after a jury decided she was too drunk to know what she was doing.

Ceri Ann Rees, 35, was filmed by CCTV cameras as she walked through a door marked 'staff only,' at Aspers casino in Swansea during a night celebrating a colleague's retirement.

The 35-year-old was seen rummaging through two handbags before returning to the restaurant area with an iPhone and a charger.
Rees, then a serving officer with Dyfed Powys police, stuffed the phone down her top before slumping onto her side.

What does this say regarding other crimes? I thought levels of intoxication or incapacitation by alcohol or drugs was solid in its refusal to be taken into account

Where does this leave the justice system? I know it's only one case, but will it lead briefs to try this and use the case as a (non) precedent?

I still would though. It's in the NAAFI to allow plod abaiters to get all livid with rage

That's a mouth made for noshing if there ever was one. Mind you, judging by the way she's holding that glass a hand job wouldn't be much kop.

She must have been hammered , as no-one in their right mind would go into Aspers in Swansea sober.

It's a fucking hole, full of trainered up chavs, Jeremy Clarkson-esque attired men pretending to be flush with cash, and the habitual Asians gambling their take away business money away.

I would. Be mean not to. And while I'm taking a shower after she could pop the shops and lift some snacks etc for me. Big only saver she'd be.

Well, you do have to be careful when you're handling a glass full of AVTAG.

If he gave them a proper shoeing he would have probably been up on hate crime charges.
