His brother had been eyeing a good-looking blonde on the jury throughout the whole trial, and before the jury began deliberating he approached the blonde and told her he'd give her $10,000 if she could convince the rest of the jury to reduce the charge to manslaughter.
The jury was out an entire week and returned with a verdict of manslaughter.
After the trial, the brother went to the blonde's house, told her what a great job she had done and paid her the $10,000.
The blonde replied, "I tell you, it wasn't easy getting them to change their minds like that. They all wanted to acquit him!"
