Unknown — There was a tedious four-day trial…

There was a tedious four-day trial at which a defendant stoutly maintained his innocence.  On the fourth day he suddenly decided to plead guilty.  The judge angrily inquired, “Why didn’t you plead guilty right at the start and save us all this time, trouble, and cost?”  “Honest, Judge,” whined the defendant, “I was convinced I was innocent until I heard all the evidence against me.”
