Two weeks into a criminal trial in a very high-profile bank robbery case, the judge turns to the jury foreman and asks: “Has the jury reached a verdict in this case?”
“Yes, we have, your honour,” the foreman responds.
“Would you please pass it to me?” the judge declares, as he motions for the bailiff to retrieve the verdict slip from the foreman and deliver it to him.

“We find the defendant Not Guilty of all four counts of bank robbery,” states the foreman. The family and friends of the defendant jump for joy at the verdict and hug each other as they shout expressions of divine gratitude.
