Local man freed by layperson's plea

Roman courtROME, AD 23

Attorneys praised the eloquent defense of an accused local man who was acquitted yesterday. The brilliant address that swayed the judge was given by a lay­person, a scribe from Damascus, who was given special permission to speak. He asserted: “Justice makes a nation great, and the greater a nation the more solicitous will it be to see that injustice shall not befall even its most humble citizen. It is the sacred duty of a magistrate to acquit the innocent as well as to punish the guilty.” The scribe continued his appeal and held the magistrate and the court spellbound. After succeeding in getting the case reopened and the prisoner released, the scribe quickly disappeared and could not be located.
