A prospective lawyer for William Jefferson Clinton on some faraway day when things really get tough for him makes an audacious argument for the accused in Connecticut Superior Court:
The lawyer for a Shelton man accused of sexually assaulting his neighbor's horse claimed Thursday the case has been blown out of proportion.
"If this was a guy and a sheep in Litchfield, and I've had a few of those cases, this would not have gotten nearly the media attention it has," said Ralph Crozier, who represents 63-year-old Marian Wegiel.
"But I guess because a horse is higher off the ground it leaves a little more to the imagination."
Wegiel, of 11 Partridge Lane, is charged with cruelty to animals, fourth-degree sexual assault, third-degree criminal trespass, and second-degree breach of the peace in the October 18 incident.
