$500 for oversleeping

One of the activists charged with trespassing at the PLA’s HQ arrived late in court this morning and was fined $500 for doing so. His excuse was that he had overslept, which is the first time I have heard that one being used in court. While it was probably not the best excuse to offer the court, it does suggest very much that this chap is honest. Perhaps that will help his cause if and when he has to testify about the events surrounding the trespassing.
