Gullibility Level: Expert

A mother has been cleared of owning a packet of drugs found in her pocket by a prison guard after claiming...
Oh, this'll be good!
...she bought her jeans in a charity shop and had no idea the substance was there.
*blinks*
Latham originally told officers that she had bought the jeans the day before visiting the prison - but admitted today that she said that in a panic.
This jury must have a room temperature IQ.
Cardiff Crown Court heard that she had purchased, washed and dried the trousers before wearing them to visit her son Che, 22.
'Che'..?! Isn't that proof enough that drugs aren't unknown to her lifestyle?

Let's just thank the Lord that it wasn't tobacco in her pocket. She'd be in the deep stuff then.

Washed and pressed, eh? What are the odds the stuff failed to come out in the wash? Slim to none by my experience of having to occasionally pick paper lint off clothing whose pockets didn't get checked thoroughly enough.

Heh!

"Washed and pressed, eh? What are the odds the stuff failed to come out in the wash?"

The story stinks to high heaven, unlike - one supposes - the jeans.
