pinned a note to the dog, accusing her of being a Vegetable Thief, I didn't want to believe him. No one wants to think the worst of a loved one. Someone who would steal from the hand that feeds them?
If any further proof was needed to convict the suspected Vegetable Thief in a court of law, I'm fairly certain this would suffice:
I don't have a background in criminology and I don't have a law degree, but I have seen many episodes of Law and Order. Usually when they catch the bad guy, the district attorney gets to pace around the courtroom and talk about evidence. Then the bad guy gets sentenced unless it is one of those disappointing episodes when there is some technicality and the bad guy gets all smirky and is released.
This isn't one of those episodes. I certainly caught Emma red handed (red mouthed?), didn't I? She was only a little embarrassed. I don't think there will be any discussion of "I was framed" or a writ of habeas corpus or anything like that.
I'm not being too harsh with the sentencing. With a face as cute as that, I think she can go with a plea bargain.
What say you, jury?
