Client is charged with driving outside the allowances on his restricted driver's license. He's living with his cousin and was driving from work (restrictions allow driving to and from work).
Client comes up and pleads not guilty. Deputy testifies that he pulled my client over and Client told him he was driving to his cousin's house. Then it's my client's turn to testify.
Me: Where were you coming from that day?Arrrgggg.
Me: And where were you going?
Client: Well, first I went to the bank and then I drove over to my cousin's house.
[Okay, that's a problem. The bank is not a sanctioned locale on the restricted license. Still, maybe the judge will forgive it if I show it was part of the trip home.]
Me: You live with your cousin?
Client: I do now, but at the time I was living with my parents.
Me: No further questions.
Judge (apparently surprised I stopped so quickly): What?
Prosecutor (trying very hard not to fall down laughing): He just admitted he was driving outside his restriction.
