One of the most ludicrous defences.
That was how prosecutor Principal State Counsel Krystal Delaney described Rico Renaldo Edwards’ defence in her closing address yesterday.
“The accused is trying to get the jury to believe he was sleeping when this offence occurred. I find it to be an affront to common sense,” she said in the No. 5 Supreme Court.
“To be honest, this is one of the most ludicrous defences I have ever heard and confusing, to be honest. So the accused man’s defence, as I understand it, is the complainant was dreaming; I didn’t do it; I touched him only to bring him around; well, I may have done this; it’s possible I did; if I did do it I was sleeping; I do not remember.”
None of them, Delaney said, was believable. (HLE)
