This book, the third in a series, provides another instalment of extraordinary cases from around the world. Based on the author’s popular Times Online column.

Further Weird Cases draws on cases and stories from many countries, including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Mexico, Italy, Japan, Romania, and China and contains a great variety of shockingly strange, funny, and entertaining courtroom dramas.

The cases featured in Further Weird Cases are those that truly stand out as odd, even among all the unusual dramas that challenge the courts:-

  • a man from Florida who had his hand bitten off by an alligator and was then convicted of “illegally feeding an alligator”;
  • a man imprisoned for 50 years for stealing a packet of pork ribs;
  • two men in Italy who broke the law by dying in a place where it was illegal to die;
  • the case in Scotland that collapsed when a dog due to give evidence died before the trial;
  • a case in Brazil in which an election candidate had tried to gain votes by including a free sample of cocaine with each election leaflet;
  • a case determining whether it is theft for a shopper to go to the ‘free sample’ counter of meat in a supermarket, fill two bags with the samples, and exit;
  • and what happened to the defendant who urinated in the judge’s waste paper bin.
These further weird cases are organised in themed chapters related to topics such as punishment, sex and love, food and drink, unusual punishments, pets and animals, and driving.

This book is highly entertaining for anyone who enjoys reading about the more bizarre aspects of human life that fetch up in the law courts at the beginning of the 21st century.
