Bank Robbery Trial

After a laborious two-week criminal trial in a very high profile bank
robbery case, the jury finally ended its 14 hours of deliberations and
entered the courtroom to deliver its verdict to the judge.

The judge turns to the jury foreman and asks, "Has the jury reached a
verdict in this case?"

"Yes we have, your honor," the foreman responded.

"Would you please pass it to me," the judge declared, as he motioned for the
bailiff to retrieve the verdict slip from the foreman and deliver it to him.

After the judge reads the verdict himself, he delivers the verdict slip back
to his bailiff to be returned to the foreman, and instructs the foreman,
"Please read your verdict to the court."

"We find the defendant NOT GUILTY of all four counts of bank robbery,"
stated the foreman.

The family and friends of the defendant jump for joy at the sound of the
"not guilty" verdict, and hug each other as they shout expressions of divine
gratitude. The defendant's attorney turns to his client and asks, "So, what
do you think about that?"

The defendant looks around the courtroom slowly with a bewildered look on
his face and then turns to his defense attorney and says, "I'm real confused
here. Does this mean that I have to give all the money back?"
