Crack dealer is no Mr. Big

Crack dealer is no Mr. Big

Pele Watson’s lawyer stood up say­ing, “My client is no Mr. Big your hon­our. He has a con­di­tion called achondroplasia.”

The judge looked up from her papers with a blank expression.

I believe it is bet­ter known as dwarfism,” the lawyer said.

Your client is still a drug dealer, Mr. Ren­dle. He sold crack cocaine to a police officer.”

He is an addict that suf­fers from para­noid schiz­o­phre­nia and depres­sion your hon­our and has not made any money from the offence.”

Per­haps, Mr. Ren­dle, you feel that your client should receive a shorter sen­tence for this crime?” the judge said.

The judge looked up from her papers with a blank expression.

“I believe it is better known as dwarfism,” the lawyer said.

“Your client is still a drug dealer, Mr. Rendle. He sold crack cocaine to a police officer.”

“He is an addict that suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and depression your honour and has not made any money from the offence.”

“Perhaps, Mr. Rendle, you feel that your client should receive a shorter sentence for this crime?” the judge said.
