Somethin' That He Never Done

Sports star pleads guilty in court to shoplifting but can't quite cough up to the rest of us:

"I think the verdict shows I was maybe in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I did something stupid,"
In yet another example of how the judiciary doesn't get it either, no conviction is recorded:

Judge Fleur Kingham... did not record a conviction against Fenech, taking note of his frequent overseas travel in his role as a boxing trainer and promoter.
...despite the fact that the crime was denied was two years before security footage prompted a belated admission of guilt.

Meanwhile, a lawyer thinks not getting violent when you're nicked is cause to be cut some slack:

Mr Di Carlo noted that Fenech did not "throw phones" or behave in a "distressing manner" when arrested by police.
