Change of Plea

A couple of days into his trial, George, the man accused of committing the crimes, stood up and asked for permission to approach the Judge.

“Your Honor,” George said, “I would like to change my plea from innocent to guilty of the charges.”

“If you are guilty,” the Judge bellowed, banging his fist angrily on the desk, “why did you not say so in the first place and save this court a lot of time and inconvenience?”

Meekly, George explained, “Well, when the trial began I did think I was innocent, but that was before I had the opportunity to hear all the evidence against me.”
