A man who’s standing trial for sexual assault exposed his penis to the courtroom in an attempt to prove his innocence of the crime with which he’s charged.

Desmond James, 26, is on trial in New Haven, Connecticut, for rape. The alleged victim of the crime made a claim the man who assaulted her had a penis which was a lighter colour than the rest of his body.

Mr James’ lawyer made the counter-claim that his client’s penis was, in fact, darker than the rest of his body, and as such, the crime could not have been committed by James, according to New York Post.

In order to evidence this claim, Mr James was allowed to expose himself.

Judge Elpedio Vitale allowed the request by Mr James’ lawyer under the grounds of the Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution, which allows every US citizen the right to a speedy trial and a fair jury, as well as the chance to confront the witnesses who are accusing them of a crime.

But when Vitale brought the two women and six men of the jury into the courtroom, he didn’t warn them what was going to take place.

He merely told them the defence was going to offer ‘non-testimonial’ evidence which was ‘sensitive in nature and highly personal’.

After the penis was shown to the court, defence attorney Todd Bussert said:

You saw a penis that is darker than the rest of his skin. For that reason alone, you must acquit.

You may have noticed because of my client having to show his penis… the gallery’s a little more full today.

He also defended his tactic of revealing his client’s penis to the court, saying photos would have created too many questions regarding film and lighting.

However, prosecutor Stacey Miranda said the graphic exhibit was not sufficient evidence, saying:

You saw the defendant’s penis – what was that?!

It was six year’s later. Do we have any idea of what she may have been seeing that night? What his manscaping was like at the time? What lighting was shining on it?

Miranda argued the evidence given by James dropping his pants was not sufficient in light of DNA evidence.

Earlier this month, a man was arrested after he was accused of sexually assaulting inmates – and was caught thanks to his ‘huge, hook-shaped penis’.

Lt. Eugenio Perez stands accused of forcing oral sex on women at the Metropolitan Detention Center. Prosecutors said descriptions of his unique male member helped them identify their mark.

In a bizarre mental image, the feds made Perez, ahem, expose himself to make sure he was their match.

The woman, who testified against Perez, was jailed at the time on a drug charge but has since been released.

She claims Perez approached her when she was getting cleaning supplies from the camera-less lieutenants’ office at the jail, even admitting to embracing his hugs and kisses because she was ‘lonely’.

Perez’s fellow lieutenant, Carlos Richard Martinez, was convicted in January of raping an inmate and is now looking at a life sentence.

The trial of Desmond James continues.
