THE MOST INGENIOUS CLOSING ARGUMENT EVER

getaway-carOur clients are caught on tape as they get back into their car after doing the robbery. You can see them have to back up several times before finally being able to get out of the parking lot and burn rubber as they peel away. (is that the expression? doesn’t sound right)

My co-counsel tells the jury that since they parked so badly for the getaway (car is blocked in by a couple of other cars) and thus this getaway is the slowest in the history of man, isn’t that an indication they they never intended to do this crime?

I couldn’t help thinking “are you kidding me?” Unfortunately the jury must’ve thought the same. Guilty.
