If you can pitch a defence about how your career will be damaged, should you fall foul of the law, then try to arrange for Judge Philippa Cunningham to hear your case.
Appropriate expressions of remorse will go down well with her, too.
And she may well look kindly on you if she believes an addiction to booze or whatever has been your downfall and you are willing to be weaned off it.
We can only imagine what sentence she would have dished up had she handled the Rolf Harris case, because his career is over and a conviction will not bugger up his employment prospects.
But back in his younger days it’s reasonable to suppose he would have been given a break in Judge Cunningham’s court – provided he was remorseful, which he hasn’t been so far.
His name may well have been suppressed, too.
