Great Legal Joke of the Day: Forgetting the Fifth

John G. Mateus, Esq.

Before a criminal trial for automobile theft began, the judge asked everyone to stand and introduce themselves on the record to the jury and the court reporter.

The prosecutor stood first. “John Smith, attorney for the Commonwealth.”

The defense attorney stood up next. “Joe Bloggs, lawyer for the defendant.”

Then the defendant stood up. “Mike Jones. I stole the truck.”
