• Cross Examination

    Policeman testifies in Court If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the policeman's credibility....

    Q: Officer -- did you see my client fleeing the scene?

    A: No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.

    Q: Officer -- who provided this description?

    A: The officer who responded to the scene.

    Q: A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?

    A: Yes, sir. With my life.

    Q: With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?

    A: Yes sir, we do!

    Q: And do you have a locker in the room?

    A: Yes sir, I do.

    Q: And do you have a lock on your locker?

    A: Yes sir.

    Q: Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?

    A: You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.

  • Marrying A Lawyer

    A girl showed interest in only marrying a lawyer.

    I asked the girl, "Why do you prefer a lawyer to marry?"

    She said, "They bow their head while entering the room and again while going out. They say 'your honor' or 'my lord' before and after every word."

    "They don't have any male ego; because, they wear a gown!"

    "They go to a BAR where liquor is not served."

    "More importantly, they never question the judgment at least before the person who gives it, whether they like it or not."

    "What more does a wife require???"
  • Courtroom Drama

    Scene: A court room where a person is on trial for murder.

    There is strong evidence indicating guilt; however, there is no corpse. In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client is guilty and that it looks like he'll probably be convicted, resorts to a clever trick.

    "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer says as he looks at his watch. "Within 1 minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this court room," he says and he looks toward the courtroom door.

    The jury, somewhat stunned, all look on eagerly. A minute passes. Nothing happens. Finally the lawyer says, "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."
    The jury, clearly confused, retires to deliberate. A very few minutes later, the jury returns and a representative pronounces a verdict of guilty.

    "But how?" inquires the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

    Answers the representative, "Oh, we did look. But your client didn't."
