That’s the US justice system for you!
I gave you a funny. I've tried in the past - without success - to locate a Daily Telegraph cartoon (I think some time circa 1970s) depicting a barrister discussing a case with his client in the latter's remand cell. The barrister was saying something like: "That's the most despicable, underhand and distasteful defence I have ever heard. But it might just work."

Joking apart, in our bay there is an armada that sank some 450+ years ago. My interest, as an avid diver, is that the area has never been surveyed.....

The beach around the point has been known as Playa de los Muertos (Beach of the Dead) for about 450+ years......

I have tentatively calculated (given the rain and the amount of silt that gets washed out to sea) that they are about 15m under the present sea-bed. Anyone know someone like the late Clive Cussler?

ETA this from Wiki:

The La Herradura naval disaster was a naval disaster on October 19, 1562 in the bay of La Herradura, Almuñécar, Spain. 25 ships sank in a storm and some 5,000 people were killed.

King Philip II of Spain had gathered a fleet in Málaga to relieve Spanish-held Oran, under siege by the Ottomans.

On October 18, 28 galleys, loaded with supplies, soldiers and their families set sail under command of Don Juan Hurtado de Mendoza y Carrillo, Captain General of the Galleys of Spain.

A strong easterly storm took the fleet by surprise, so Mendoza decided to take cover in La Herradura Bay. This is a horseshoe-shaped bay, opening towards the south-west. But in the morning of October 19, the storm unexpectedly returned, now blowing from the south. The trapped ships were thrown onto each other and then crashed upon the rocks. 25 of the 28 galleys sank and between 3,000 and 5,000 people died. The surviving ships were La Soberana, Mendoza and San Juan. Some 2,000 people rescued themselves by swimming towards the coast. Many of them were galley slaves because they were lightly dressed and well-trained.

This was a true disaster for the Spanish Navy, which had just suffered a terrible defeat in the Battle of Djerba. Nevertheless, Oran and Mers El Kébir were successfully defended against the Ottomans.

Today, a monument in La Herradura notes this tragedy.

‘Barnsley Bush’ to replace Brazilian as beauty salon shutdown hits hard

2020-04-02

1586355212671.png
The full implications of the beauty salon shutdown started to emerge today, as trend gurus predicted that the much maligned ‘Barnsley Bush’ is set to become the style of choice for ladies throughout the UK.For many years, ‘less is more’ has been the order of the day with respect to downstairs topiary – a style typified by the ubiquitous Brazilian. But with beauty emporia being forced to close for business, fashionistas are predicting a return to a style not seen outside the south Yorkshire town of Barnsley since the late 1970’s.

“The Barnsley Bush never went away, it just stayed in Barnsley” said Jean De’Tospo, who writes a weekly column for style magazine Landing Strip. “But with restricted access to depilatory assistance at the professional level, I’m predicting a return to the more free-flowing style which your Barnsley lasses have sported all along.”Tracey Clunge from Wombwell, near Barnsley, appeared confused when asked how the shut down would affect her beauty regime. “It’ll make no difference to me,” she said “I’ll just scrape it up into a bun and then take the shears to it when I can’t get my knickers on, like always”
