I was watching “The Untouchables” today, a movie I loved as a kid. At the penultimate scene, Kevin Costner gets the judge to switch juries, because Robert De Niro has bought them off. Anyways, De Niro’s lawyer switches the plea to guilty, and De Niro just goes crazy as he gets hauled off to jail.
Why do I tell you this? Because coming to law school has ruined this movie for me now. A lawyer can’t just change a plea, have the defendant object, and still have the guilty plea go through.
That’s ridiculous.What’s even more ridiculous is that now I’ll never be able to enjoy this movie the same way. And this is just one example of many, trust me. All I have left is the booze.
