“Courtroom Ploy!!” • January 31, 2006

Hey!  It was worth a shot!


A guy was accused of murder and had hired a top notch gorgeous blond defense attorney to represent him.  However, even with her best efforts, his chances of acquittal didn’t look so hot.  There was a mountain of circumstantial evidence against her client — but — the alleged victim’s body had never been found.  Still, even without the body, the blond felt that her client would most likely be convicted.  So during her closing statement to the jury she tried a tricky ploy to salvage the case.

“Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise revelation for you,” the blond said as she looked carefully at her watch and then pointed to the door into the courtroom. “Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom right through those very doors!!!”

The jurors were totally stunned by this turn of events and stared intently at the doors as a hush fell over the courtroom.

A minute passed.

Nothing happened.

Another minute passed.

And still nothing happened.

Finally the blond turned slowly back to face the jury and said, “Actually, I made up the previous statement.  But each and everyone of you looked at the door.  Each of you believed that the presumed decease was about to walk in.  I therefore put to you that you have a more than reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and since you all have a reasonable doubt of the defendant’s guilt, you must return a verdict of not guilty.”

This left the jury, which had been ready to convict a moment before, totally confused.  As they retired to deliberate, the blond gave herself a mental “high five” for another stunning victory!

HOWEVER —

Much to her chagrin, the jury returned just two minutes later and promptly rendered a verdict of guilty!!!

Devastated, the gorgeous blond asked them afterwards, “How could you possibly convict my client?  You all had doubts — I know you did — each and everyone of you stared at the door.”

The jury foreman replied: “Yes, Miss, all of us did look — but your client didn't.”
