An Australian man was sentenced to two years in prison for trying to suffocate a prostitute, in hopes of rendering her unconscious so he could get his money back.
Luckily, the woman's boyfriend was in the other room and came to her rescue.
His defense was that it was all an accident. He was just holding the bag at head level and the woman happened to turn around putting her head into the bag my mistake.
Needless to say, the judge didn't believe him.
