30 LAWYERS HAS THERE EVER BEEN A TIME THE OPPOSING COUNSEL ACCIDENTALLY PROVED YOUR CASE FOR YOU AND WHAT HAPPENED

1. is…

I had a misdemeanor possession case I was defending. Client was driving his mom's car. He gets pulled over for playing the stereo too loud. There are pills in the center console. In a prescription pill bottle. The bottle has his moms name on it. Client gets arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.

Case is obviously bullshit but the dumbest DA I've ever met in my life won't dismiss. We go to trial.

During closing arguments the DA says "This case is a circumstantial evidence case."

During my closing I slap the jury instruction on the projector that says if a case is based on circumstantial evidence and there is one factual scenario that points to guilt and one that points to innocence the jury must find in favor of the defendant and acquit.

My client was acquitted.
