After a two-week criminal trial in a very high profile bank
robbery case, the judge turns to the jury foreman and asks,
"Has the jury reached a verdict in this case?"
"Yes, we have, your honor," The foreman responded.
"Would you please pass it to me," The judge declared, as he
motioned for the bailiff to retrieve the verdict slip from
the foreman and deliver it to him.
After the judge reads the verdict himself, he delivers the
verdict slip back to his bailiff to be returned to the
foreman and instructs the foreman, "Please read your verdict
to the court."
"We find the defendant Not Guilty of all four counts of bank
robbery." stated the foreman. The family and friends of the
defendant jump for joy at the verdict and hug each other as
they shout expressions of divine gratitude.
The man's attorney turns to his client and asks, "So, what
do you think about that?"
The defendant, with a bewildered look on his face turns to
his attorney and says, "I'm real confused here. Does this
mean that I have to give all the money back?"
