Weird Criminal Law Stories # 326:Plea Deal…

FLORIDA: Three robbers decided that taking a plea deal was safer than going to trial. Why? One of the robbers had left a note to the others in the courtroom warning them  “to get their stories straight for trial.” The defendants were about to be tried for a Christmas Day home invasion and armed robbery when a deputy spotted the note in the jury box, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office. When confronted with the contents of the note, all three of the men changed their not guilty pleas.

Please tell your future clients not to write notes like that and leave them in the courthouse!


 RUSSIA: This one is about an argument that did not end philosophically.  A Russian man shot an acquaintance after they got into a very heated debate over the 18th century philosopher Immanuel Kant. Fortunately, the gun used was a small caliber one that did not do much damage to the victim.  He will live.

It would probably better for these two to never again discuss the great philosophers of bygone days.


WASHINGTON: A gang of robbers had a bright plan to evade police capture – they would paint their car a different color. Wesley French, 22, and his buddies spray-painted their green Nissan black shortly after the robbery. However, the crooks forgot to change the vehicle’s license plates.  They were soon caught by police.



NEW YORK: An upstate man was arrested for DWI, even though he was asleep.  Police said they arrested the man when he slipped into a nap while in the drive thru lane at a McDonalds in the town of Newstead. The man never got his opportunity to buy or enjoy a Big Mac or fries.  He was instead awakened by the officers and  then failed a Breathalyzer test.

Off you go now lad, off to the drunk tank. No big Mac and fries for you tonight!
