Ah well, ignorance can sometimes be a mitigating factor or even a way of getting out of something completely. I know there's the saying that ignorance is no defence in law, but things are sometimes more complicated than that. Lots of crimes have a mens rea element; theft is one (intent to permanently deprive) and murder is another. Sure, you'll sometimes be convicted of something else instead (manslaughter instead of murder, for example) but... oh god I've gone into lecture mode, haven't I?

Sorry. I don't often find a use for the old law degree these days and have gone a bit 'splain-happy.
