    A "schoolboys' locker room joke"

    A "schoolboys' locker room joke"


    That's the description being given to a lawyer's decision to measure a Kapiti councillor's penis during his trial.

    David Scott's appealing his sentence and conviction for indecently assaulting a female colleague in 2017.

    The defence took measured the 72-year-old - to prove the victim couldn't have felt him rubbing against her.

    At his appeal , defence lawyer Barbara Hunt said the move was a fundamental error.

    She says it was a tactic that misfired and was degrading and insulting.

    She also told the court additional suppressed medical evidence she says should've been heard at trial.
