TONY
“I got off yesterday.”

PHILIP
“What was that???”

TONY
“The judge said I didn’t have to do my 20 hours of community service. And you know who saved me … it was the crown prosecutor.”

PHILIP
“Who?”

TONY
“The crown prosecutor.”

PHILIP
“The crown prosecutor argued on your behalf?”

TONY
“Yup. He said that the case should never’ve got this far. He told the judge that the evidence just wasn’t strong enough. He said that I wasn’t at the wheel of the car, plus there weren’t any fingerprints that tied me to the crime.

“Then the judge said that he knew I was having trouble getting a place to do my 20 hours of the community service. He’d even read the blog about it.”

PHILIP
“So that’s it, no community service?”

TONY
“Yeah, but I’ll still try to help when I can.”

Courting trouble

Expanding universe

PHILIP
“How did your court appearance go yesterday [April 9th]?”

TONY
“Well you’ll never believe it. I went into the wrong courtroom and they were in the middle of picking a jury for some trial. Now you can’t leave a courtroom while they’re picking a jury so I had to stay put, even though I knew I was supposed to be at my trial in another courtroom. So I finally get to leave the room once the jury pickings’s done, and one of the court officers comes up to me and tells me that my judge went and issued a bench warrant because I was a no-show.”

PHILIP
“So …?”

TONY
“Well of course I explained what happened to me and there were few people right there who could vouch for my story. So the court officer brought me ’round to the judge and I explained the same thing to him and he heard from a few witnesses who’d seen me in the other courtroom. So the judge right away cancelled my bench warrant. He was fair and there was no problems after that. But I’ve got to go back to court again in a few weeks. It just never seems to end.”
