A short elderly man's propensity for propositioning tall women has landed him in court, with a judge threatening to impose fines if he doesn't change his ways. Even Abraham Cohen's lawyer was unable to explain the behavior of his 5-foot client. "He's addicted to chatting up tall girls - you'd think he would be burnt out at 66," attorney Ron Cannon told Magistrate Malcolm Whitely this week in Perth, Australia. Cohen pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault for feeling the thigh of a woman sitting next to him on a shopping mall bench. In placing Cohen on bond, Whitley told him: "If this happens again, it's going to cost you $3,000 ($2,400 U.S.). Explain that to your wife." Cannon said Cohen was one of his "most persistent clients," with a long record of similar offenses dating back 20 years, and that he always paid his legal fees in advance to keep his wife from finding out.
