Tension filled the courtroom. Both prosecutor and defense stood when the jury walked solemnly back in.
As the crowd held its collective breath, the foreman spoke: “We, the jury, find the accused to be guilty of spreading false lies.”
The prosecutor and the defense turned to the head of the court for confirmation. The judge banged his gavel. “The defendant has been exonerated by virtue of double negative. Case dismissed!”
The Daily Post prompt today is False.
