LAUGH OF THE DAY: An Artificial Sentence...

Arlington VA Realtor

A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried a creative defense to get his client free.

"My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few paltry items. His arm is not technically himself, so I fail to see how you can punish the whole body for an offense committed only by his arm."

"Well put," the judge replied with a grin. "Using that same logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. Your client can accompany the arm or not, as he chooses."

The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's help, he detatched his artificial limb, laid it on the bench and walked out.

The amputee had a smart lawyer--smarter than the judge!

So I wonder if you are a lower limb amputee and you kick the tar out of someone can you just leave the leg behind to take the fall ? :).  ( J )
