If a husband and a wife turn to crime - and many families do engage in criminal activities together - and if they commit a hanging offence, only the husbang hangs. His wife simply has to plead that she was obeing her husband's orders.

вот, кстати, совершенно не понимаю, почему Мортимера еще не издали в какой-нибудь серии "Повседневная жизнь...". Вот уж что, если не его?
