    His defence may be that his car had been stolen and that the mugging would have been perpetrated by the thief. Which might be true – it wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened. Another reason to report car theft quickly, before the thief has a chance to commit a crime for which you might be charged.

    Whether it was, or wasn’t, your last point is a lesson for us all.
