If you're on trial, there's very little you can do other than stand and await your fate. However, if you've got some tricks hidden up your sleeve, you may as well give them ago.
If you're ever in the situation where you do need to try a tactic in an attempt to get off lightly, make sure you get at least four peoples opinions on whether it's a good idea or not. Brian Earl Taylor, for example, clearly didn't do that - he had a terrible idea.
Brian was appearing in Washtenaw County Trial Court for his sentencing for unlawful imprisonment and carrying a concealed weapon.
The 21-year-old lifted the melody from Adele's smash hit Hello and changed the lyrics to "Hello there, your honor. I want to say I'm sorry for the things I've done and I'll try and be stronger in this life I chose, but I want you to know -- that door, I closed. And your honor I'm sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry."
Unfortunately for Brian, his song didn't work. Judge Darlene O'Brien sentenced him to serve two years in prison for illegally carrying a concealed weapon and 18 months or more for unlawful imprisonment, according to MLive.
