Why David Beckham’s status will not stop him from being humiliated

The unpopular insinuation that celebrities and public figures are treated with utmost respect might not play out in his case if David Beckham is found guilty.

The former Real Madrid and England international has been accused of over speeding in a Bentley over technicality.

With the matter already in court, he will have to defend himself or risked being sanctioned by the law of the land.

The 43-year-old former captain was accused of driving a Bentley at 59mph (95km/h) in a 40mph (65km/h) zone on the A40 in Paddington on 23 January.

He has therefore sought the service of a lawyer named, Nick Freeman, popularly known as Mr Loophole to defend him.

Freeman, in Beckham’s defence, while in the Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court, said there was “no issue” with the speed alleged backing his client who had earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges leveled against him.

Mr Loophole, argued that the notice of intended prosecution cannot be defended because it was served quiet late.

This has forced the trial to be pushed forward on 27 September at Wimbledon Magistrates Court where Beckham is not mandated to attend.

If found guilty, the footballer turned-celebrity will me made to face the law.
