Three Burglars Plead Guilty After Dropping a Note in Court Detailing How to Get Their Stories Straight
Even if you are guilty in this country you can plead not guilty and game the system unless you do something stupid.
According to the Sun Sentinel, three men who were accused of breaking into a home in Pensacola, Florida last Christmas were in court last week. While walking in, the bailiff noticed one was digging through his pockets.
The bailiff then asked what he was looking for, and the man claimed he lost a note from his lawyer.
The bailiff went looking for the note which he found in the jury box and upon opening it, he found out it wasn’t from his lawyer but was actually from one of the other defendants making sure all three had their stories straight.
When the defendants were caught red handed they decided to forego a trial and entered guilty pleas instead.
