Guilty?

(1/1)

monty:
In a very odd murder case at court, there is strong evidence that the defendant is guilty but no corpse has ever been found. The defense lawyer is fairly sure that his client will be found guilty but he tries a clever trick. "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all. Within the next minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this court room," and he looks toward the courtroom door.

The jury, somewhat stunned, all look to the door. A minute passes. Nothing happens. Finally the lawyer says: 'Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I therefore put it to you, that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."

The jury, retires to deliberate. A very few minutes later, the jury returns and the representative pronounces a verdict of guilty.

"But how?" inquires the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

Answers the representative: "Oh, we did look. But your client didn't."
