Scottish Surgeon Acquitted of Wife Beating – After Admitting His Guilt to Police
Prominent surgeon Eugene Wheelwright was acquitted of assaulting his wife after his wife refused to press charges and his defense attorney called the police evidence incompetent – despite the fact that Wheelwright admitted to the investigating police that he slapped his wife so hard that she fell and lacerated her head, causing profuse bleeding. The alleged inciting event was Mrs. Wheelwright confronting her husband over a supposed affair with a colleague.
Editor’s note – how many more centuries is this type of garbage going to go on for?
