Vomiting in Court

Of course I tell my clients how to behave in court, what to wear, what to say, what not to say, how to react emotionally and when to start sobbing (if I think that they would be good actors). In some child custody cases where my clients couldn’t be present in person, I even tried to sway the judge by watering up myself. It worked. The courtroom is my stage.

Oscar Pistorius bucketAfter reading about the trial of Oscar Pistorius in South Africa, I might have to add vomiting in court to the repertoire.

But having a large, green bucket with you makes the whole act look less than spontaneous. If you want it to have any effect, you really need to throw up all over your desk.

    What a wimp! Pistorius seemed to think that shooting his girlfriend made him a real man, but puking in court proves to the world that he`s nothing but a big crybaby!

    5 years in jail. Of which he will probably serve 8-10 months. After that, he may be released and placed under house arrest with an electronic tag. I wonder if they will put the tag on his ‘ankle’?

    I think the sentence was too lenient, he also made payments to the family… Milady.
