Appeals court: Size doesn't matter

This has to be the strangest defense I've ever heard of:

Houston's 14th Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld the conviction of a local doctor for indecent exposure.

The court rejected the argument by high-profile attorney Dick DeGuerin and his associate Neal Davis that the doctor could not have exposed himself to an undercover cop because that which is alleged to have been exposed is too small to have been seen.

It's a column worth reading to the end if just to see the details of the defense and how it was concocted.
