Remember the snake man? Well, apparently, his poor shlub defense isn't the whole story:

Claro, 39, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of sex assault and one of sexual exploitation against [an] underage teen, and not guilty to three counts of sex assault against an 18-year-old female.

The two teens have testified that he caressed and groped them on several occasions in 2005. Claro did not testify.

In that trial, which is in its final stages at Old City Hall provincial court, Crown prosecutor Kim Walker has argued that one of the ways Claro exercised control over the 16-year-old girl was by telling her that he wanted to let cobras loose in houses.

A "trouser snake" joke at this point would be too obvious, even for me.

Or would it?
