Don’t you just hate it when you’re on your feet making a great, even brilliant, legal argument and suddenly, out of nowhere, the judge asks you for some case law to support your position?

Well, if this outrageous experience ever happens to you in a civil case, I can’t give you any advice. But when you are arguing a criminal case and you suddenly need to provide some law, just cite “State v. Johnson.” You can never go wrong because you’ll always be right! There’s nothing deceptive or underhanded about it. That’s because somewhere, there is a State v. Johnson supporting the precise legal proposition you need.
