Negotiations at Their Best

Prosecutor: "He shot him in the gut. I'll offer 3 years for maiming."

Defense Attorney: "Maiming!?! Nobody around here is going to convict him for shooting Johnny Smith."

Prosecutor: "Okay, what do you think he should be convicted of?"

Defense. Attorney: "Destruction of property. That was a pretty decent shirt Johnny was wearing. Nobody should have their property torn and stained like that.'
