Defendant: A lot. Almost all of them.
Judge: Ok, let me see your time sheet.

BARRISTER: Mr ********, you say you weren’t having an affair but how do you explain the receipt for several pieces of woman’s lingerie found in your vehicle during the search?
WITNESS: On a weekend I like to dress as a woman.
BARRISTER: Is that the truth Mr ********
WITNESS: Like I would lie about that…

BARRISTER: But isn't it true you wear glasses Mr Thompson?
BARRISTER: And you've admitted in your statement that you didn't have them on at the time - so how can you be sure it was Mr Marshall you saw?

BARRISTER: Was there anyone else sitting at your table?
WITNESS: Yes, sir. There was about eight couples there that night.
BARRISTER: Did you have a date that night?
WITNESS: No, sir. I am afraid I had my wife with me.
