I've always liked the fact that British (and Canadian, and Indian, etc.) lawyers and judges wear wigs. It adds a certain amount of dignity to the courtroom process, and gives the rawest, newest barrister a bit of gravitas. So, when I saw this little experiment that a DA tried in Boston, it warmed my heart and made me just think that we Americans, with our love for analogies which compare lawyers to sharks and pit bulls, may be on to something....

UPDATE: The jury acquitted the defendant!.

I'm actually incredibly happy to see the acquittal here. Even by DA-grasping-at-straws standards, this case was some weak shit. "Uh, yeah, we... forgot to tape the confession... and we lost our notes... BOO! OOGA-BOOGA! SCARY PERVERTS! The prosecution rests!"
