Exonerating evidence

In 1983, an unusual scene took place in court in Florida, USA. Three female dancers were on trial. Undercover investigators had allegedly observed the women showing “too much” while working in a nightclub.

They were charged with indecency.

The dancers had violated a county ordinance which prohibited nudity in places where food and drink were being served. The women’s attorney pointed out to the Court that the women’s underwear had been too large to reveal the body parts which the undercover police officers claimed to have seen.

The lawyer made an application for his clients to be allowed to demonstrate their dance in the Judge’s chambers. The Judge refused point-blank to permit the dance demonstration in his chambers, fearing for his rather young career but, strangely enough, he permitted the dance demonstration to take place in open court. 

The women then turned around in front of the judge and presented their backsides to him. 

The Judge then summarily ruled that their underwear was indeed of sufficient size and dismissed the charges, heading back into his chambers like a man on a kamikaze mission.
