A courtroom is usually saturated with a serious atmosphere, but it isn’t safe from epic fails (often caused by someone on the stand) that can affect a lawyer’s disposition and even cost them a win. On the other hand, these little slip-ups are often instrumental in revealing the truth, proving that karma sometimes comes in the form of self-service.
While these catastrophic moments can be detrimental to the trial, they do sometimes make for hilarious courtroom confessions that we can all laugh at after the fact. From people accidentally admitting to their crimes to getting entangled in their own web of lies; it’s all here. We have some courtroom drama coming up right now, your honor.
