My friend Rebecca is a prosecutor and, whenever I see her, I insist she fill me in on her recent cases. Though most involve routine litigation, she occasionally tells a gem of a tale.

The last time I asked, she told me about the Anus Motion.

“This guy gets pulled over on suspicion of a DUI,” she said, “And it turns out that he only speaks Spanish. So the cop radios for a Spanish-speaking colleague. A second officer shows up, reads the driver his rights in Spanish off of a little card that all cops carry, and they administer the breathalyzer test. Sure enough, the guy is soused.

“We figure this case is a slam dunk. But a few weeks later the driver’s lawyer submits a motion to have the results of the breathalyzer voided, saying that the defendant didn’t understand his rights before we gave him the test. And we’re all, like, ‘Nuh-uh! We read him his rights. In Spanish, even.’

“But the defense somehow got a copy of the Spanish language card that the officer read from, and noticed that the little squiggle was missing from above an ‘n’ in the sentence: ‘¿Tiene veinteuno años?’ In English that literally translates to ‘Do you have 21 years?’—in other words, this was just a routine question to make sure the guy was an adult. But without the tilde over the ‘n’, the word ‘años’ becomes ‘anos’—Spanish for ‘anuses.’

“They’re claiming that the driver thought the officer asked ‘Do you have 21 anuses’, despite the fact that the officer reading the card spoke fluent Spanish and would have pronounced it ‘años’ anyway. And the defendant said ‘si.’ We’re supposed to believe that the guy genuinely thought he was being asked if he had multiple anuses and answered with an enthusiastic ‘yes!’

“The best part is that the defense attorney can’t even bring himself to say the word ‘anus.’ Instead, he calls it ‘the back region.’ We’re going in front of a judge next week, and I’m going to make a point of saying the word ‘anus’ as many times as I can during the proceeding. I even got them to call the legal brief ‘The Anus Motion,’ so he won’t even be able to refer to it by title.

“What do you think the judge will do?” I asked her.

She shrugged. “Probably throw the case out,” she said. “And we’ll have to go back and change all the cards.”

That's hilarious. Don't get me wrong, the dude should definitely get a DUI! I beet a traffic charge once, because one of the forms had the date wrong. the form had 19__ and the officer just wrote in 01. I told the judge that I wasn't born until 1979, and had no clue what had happened on that day in 1901.

I got screwed on something like that. The cop misspelled my name, got the wrong make of car and wrong color completely for a speeding ticket. The judge didn't care, he made me pay the ticket anyway. Thats what you get when your early 20's and in a college town.

I would have argued that whether or not he answered "yes" to having 21 anuses, it had nothing to do with him knowing his rights and he was still drunk. Might still get thrown out, who knows?

The DEFENSE is actually claiming this? Isn't that further proof that the guy was drunk?

Too drunk to understand your rights is too drunk to drive, no matter how you slice it.

I hope this guy gets nailed to the wall with the judge, prosecutor, and everyone involved laughing him all the way to jail, fines, and rehab.

Our fantastic legal system will probably fail us again, though. Protecting the innocent is a great idea...until you let lawyers do it. Then everyone's innocent.

He should get off on the Drunk driving ticket, but get nailed for lying to the officer- that is, unless he DOES have 21 anuses.
