Overheard at the Public Defenders' Office No. 2

HEAVILY-INKED, SKINHEAD CLIENT: The prosecutor's tryin' to break me, but you've got to tell him that I'm not a criminal.

PUBLIC DEFENDER: But you have the word
C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L tattooed on your forehead ...

CLIENT: That one was a big mistake.

I had a client get a new tattoo on the back of his neck a week or so after I was appointed to him on: Misd. Battery, Kidnapping, Grand Theft, and Rape. The tattoo: 'REDRUM.' Later it looked like he scratched the second 'R' so that it looked like a 'B.' We agreed that if the case went to trial he would wear something to cover it.
