An American Crime Saga: Part Four
Hello everybody! Before I get started, if you haven't read parts 1-3, this will spoil it for you, so please go back and read those before reading ahead. For those of you have followed the saga through so far, lets get started.
"We find the defendant guilty of all charges, your honor!" Those words kept repeating themselves like a broken tape recorder inside of Jimmy's worn out brain.
"Objection, your honor! There's no way!" Jimmy's lawyer stood up angrily and outraged. He wasn't going to stand for the ruling.
"Overruled!" The judged yelled, frightening everybody in the room.
"But I see a blind man and a deaf man in that jury! They have no reason to be determining this man's life!" The lawyer continued, despite the judge's orders. This was one of those lawyers who thought they could do anything. Somebody who could get anybody out of a jam. His obviously fake hair was close to slipping off as his pale white face reddened and sweat poured down his cheeks.
"Mr. Williams, when I say 'overruled' I MEAN OVERRULED! Now sit down and listen to my sentencing!" The judge screamed, revealing the lawyer's name.
All Jimmy could do was watch as his lawyer practically poured lemon juice in his wounds. He was just convicted of two crimes he hadn't committed. He plead guilty to the robbery claim, but not the murder and assault. Now instead of five years in a federal prison, he could have more than fifty! Teeth clenched, he looked around the courtroom.
Across the room, he could notice one family discussing what they thought. Then there was the judge, who must've been having personal problems because nobody could be that heartless and fed up with everything. There was his no-good, know-it-all, big-shot lawyer who'd just sold away his life. And there was that face. The embodiment of evil. There was Detective Troy West. The detective was obviously happy with the ruling. Not only was West off the hook for all those murders, but he knew in his heart that he'd finally gotten his man.
"There we go! Nice work Judge McLeod! I'm gonna buy you a damn medal you saint!" West clapped his hands and yelled across the room whilst everyone else silenced and awaited the sentence.
Jimmy just grinned and bared it. He looked at the face-wide grin on West's face. Jimmy couldn't help but feel that the detective deserved to be happy. He got his man. He did his job. Jimmy knew he was caught. He clenched his fist, convincing himself that he was wrong. West killed numerous people and blamed it on Jimmy. Jimmy wanted to attack him right there, but that wouldn't help the sentencing. He put his head down as the judge silenced West and prepared.
"James Isaac Neutron, you have been found guilty of assault, robbery, and murder by a state jury. Therefore, I am sentencing you to sixty years in California State Priso...More Cartoon Sex Stories...
