Got money on my mind

“Joel will be acquitted, right?” Francine chased after the public defender assigned to her son’s case. She slipped into the elevator just as the doors shut.

“That’s unlikely, he had possession of the stolen money.” PD Guzman pushed the button for the 8th floor court room.

“That money could’ve come from anywhere,” Francine’s voice rose. She stepped forward, wagging an indignant finger in the attorney’s face.

“A bank guard was shot,” Guzman said, backing away from the agitated woman. “Joel confessed to the robbery.”

“It wasn’t Joel’s fault,” Francine whined. “He was just bored. He’s only a kid acting out.”

Exculpate and/or Acquit

  1. I love the way you can take so many prompts and make something amazing out of them! I do feel for the attorney trapped in the elevator – I bet he wished he had had taken the stairs. Sometimes I really do blame the parents! Lyssa Mx

    1. Thank you, John. Some parents make up some crazy excuses for their children’s bad behavior.
