A legal loophole?

Here is a legal maxim:

Qui peccat ebrius, luat sobrius - He who does wrong when drunk must be punished when sober. (

Does this mean that someone upon committing a crime (DUI even?) can escape the terrible blow of justice being administered, as long as this person manages to maintain a continuous state of drunkenness, or at the very least to do his/her best to become drunk once approached by law enforcement agents?

It appears as if the Vatican wants to publish the Chinon Parchment at about $8K a copy. Sadly, this is out of my price range. I am guessing, it's for collectors only.
