Three Blind Mice: Justice is Served
The Criminal Case
They went to court hearing with a grand jury and the farmer's wife appeared for arraignment.
The jury read the indictment, she was smart to establish a plea bargain.
By doing this she declared herself guilty, and could not get out on a bail before trial because she had committed a felony.
The day of the trial both sides had a public defender whom prepared their opening statements to read in front of the petit jury and judge hearing the case.
Both the prosecution (mice) and defense (farmer's wife)had cross examination under oath and told their side of the story. Every one told the truth, nobody convicted perjury.
