Pervey Winkelstain should sack his legal team if they have told him that not being fit to stand will get him aff.It's only if he's not fit to stand trial because he can't understand the process for mental reasons, no just because he cannae stand unsupported during the trial
They always seem to do this in the states though. Perhaps it does have some effect and I wouldn't be surprised given that their legal system is basically Judge Judy in a proper building instead of a TV studio.
Remember that Zimmerman twat who shot Trayvon Martin? His lawyers got him to put on three stone so he looked like a roly poly fat boy who couldn't harm a fly. After he got off he went back to the weights.
