The joke is good, but it's "hanged"
@GSDGACMMPA, yeah, hung is for dead meat, so he will be hanged, and shortly afterwards hung
"Fun" Fact: In many jurisdictions, unless you are an extreme threat of violence or flight, they will uncuff you during your trial so as to cause as minimal bias from the jury as possible. Assuming your defense attorney isn't a crap public defender (not all PD's are bad).
@LawyeredApe, if only clients would take the chance and look the absolute best they can. I mean putting on a nice shirt and a pair of dress pants can help a lot. At the very least don't wear a shirt that says fućk the police and pants that are almost on the ground. I know it shouldn't matter, but perceptions are still there.
@Jfosh, very true. Especially going to jury trials because they need to convince a group of 6-12 strangers to side with them.
Double jeopardy. Checkmate.
