Del’s Deal

Will Del take the deal, on the advice of his attorney? Do the details of his prosecution really need to be explored here? The shadow effect is cool.

  1. I like the way Del’s hair went all shocky after getting the bad news.

    Also, if the lawyer’s stern expression is anything to go by, Dell would be wise to get a second opinion. Guy looks like he’s thinking, “Geez, my client is a mess. We’ve got to keep him off the roads as long as possible!”

  2. I’d like to meet the prosecutor who jokes about second degree murder.

  3. I’m curious about the sign to the attorney’s right. Given the setting, it might say “NO HANDBALL,” but there are too many characters for that.

  4. I think Del needs to find another attorney. This guy seems to be working for the prosecution, and doesn’t seem to be trying to advocate on his behalf.
    “You knew the dangers of drunk driving” is now sufficient to drop a murder charge on someone?

  5. And G.I. Del, knowing is half the battle. The other half might be doing a PSA for Sophie and the van-load over at Judge Parker. Oop’s, looks like you’re too late.

  6. Has anyone seen this lawyer actually do anything? Apart from telling Del, “You’re in over your head”? Granted, it’s pretty cut and dried (“Your honor, the state submits into evidence the ‘Gil Thorp’ comic strip from June 3rd, 2016, panel two”). Shouldn’t the maneuvering over the plea deal be much further along?

  7. Del’s best defense is right there in panel 2. No, dumbass Del doesn’t know the dangers of drunk driving. And if witnesses saw Del driving with his lights off, why didn’t they tell him? It’s their fault! This lawyer is a hack!

  8. One thing Whigrub has right is that this is thus far a plea bargain. Actual trials are increasingly rare. I find myself wishing people would just try the goddamn case. Collegial talks do not produce Atticus Finches.

  9. @billy: Surely you can’t be serious? I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley.

  10. Back and front of Dels shirt say “County’. I’ll venture my house that county jail shirts dont say ‘County’ on them, they have the prisoner number on the front, and nothing on the back. So if Del gets transfered to a state prison the shirt will say ‘State’?

  12. Well, would you want a drunk driver, speeding with no lights on, in your area? No Sir, been there, done that

  13. But agree Del needs a new lawyer — Atticus Finch would be great! But can’t find his number??
