Adventures in courtroom lying, part 3: Kim Duclos tries to defend a demonstrably false allegation (audio)

When your story about someone harassing you is obviously fictional and definitively collapses when the "perpetrator" proves that he was miles away at the time of the supposed incident, and you're sitting in a courtroom describing the "incident" under oath, you have a few options. One is to say that you might have been mistaken and attribute the phantom transgression to someone else, thereby letting yourself as well as every actual motorist alive off the hook. Another is to double down on your lying and bolster it by saying you've been harassed all over town by the same guy driving the same (also clearly fictional) nonexistent pickup truck.

I don't want to spoil the ending, so have a listen and read the accompanying post.
