The Daily Mail reports that a Court of Appeal judge charged with flashing on a train is being allowed to continue work:
Lord Justice Richards is reviewing failed immigration and asylum applications as he awaits trial over claims he twice exposed himself to a woman on a train.
Quite right too, particularly in view of his salary. He may very well not be guilty, anyway.
He stressed his work was purely a ‘desk-top exercise’.
As long as he’s sitting down, then.
The article has a good picture of a full-bottomed wig (Allongeperücke). These are only worn on ceremonial occasions, not in normal court proceedings. ‘Lord Justice’ is the title of a judge in the Court of Appeal and doesn’t imply he’s a lord, by the way.
