A friend of mine was doing jury service recently.
After all the evidence was given and after the jury had been deliberating for a while, one of the jury members asked:
“Which one is the accused?”
When she was told which person was actually on trial, she asked:
“Wasn’t the other bloke accused?”
“No,” she was told by my friend, “he was the chief prosecution witness.”
“Oh,” the other jury member replied, “I thought they were both on trial.”
The accused man was found guilty. He probably was.
