John Youens, former archdeacon and chaplin to Queen Elizabeth II, was once brought before a British court on charges of sexual assault. Detectives, it seemed, had observed him repeatedly lifting the skirt of a fourteen-year-old girl while standing behind her at the Wimbledon tennis championships.
Youens's defense? Recent surgery, he told jurors, made it necessary for him to perform arm exercises, during the course of which he had accidentally brushed the teenager's skirt.
[He was acquitted.]
