100 Words – Deviant

deviant

“I am a deviant.” said the man who committed no crime. The judges stared down at him with pity, but there is no room for pity in the law. They whispered to each other and passed notes up and down the line. The man in the witness box looked to his lawyer for some sense of what was going to happen next. The lawyer knew but closed his eyes so as not to tell.

Finally the judges arrived at their verdict. “Not guilty.” said the bailiff. Before the man could protest he was grabbed and dragged from the court room.
