Fake news

By Anonymous - 18/07/2014 20:04 - Cura?ao

Today, I read a book by a former client who did time for fraud. She swears she's innocent, and blames everyone for her "ordeal": the police, court, judge, and me, her own attorney. She conveniently forgot to mention her two full confessions, one of which was given before the judge. FML

Give her a real ordeal to write about!

Please, please mention that in your Amazon review of her book.


Give her a real ordeal to write about!

I smell a libel suit.

What are you going to do. Some people are liars.

I'm confused here. Did OP read a book about this lady?

It says "BY a lady" not "ABOUT a lady".

OP read a book by somebody OP couldn't get off for a crime they admitted they did.

I read this as he was reading in the vicinity of a lady... then I understood.

Well it's by the lady about the lady

You can't handle the TRUTH

I want to know the name of this book.

It's called Orange is the New Black :P

You're just assuming that because it's a popular book/show about prison. It's definitely not Orange Is The New Black. The author knew she was guilty and never denied that fact, and her book is about her experience in prison and what she's learned. It isn't her crying about how she's innocent or blaming everyone else like her character in the show often does. Things are exaggerated or made up completely in the show to add interest.

If you listen closely, you can hear the soft "whoosh" of the joke flying straight over your head.

Wow somebody doesn't know jokes when she reads it

#59, I'm gonna steal that remark.

Dude, chill. It was a joke!

Well at least you're only reading about this woman, and don't have to deal with her in real life anymore.

OP is the attorney.

The case is over so no need to still deal with her

Good catch, #6. That last minute editing really did wonders for that comment. It's much better now.

#25, I didn't edit it, what are you taking about?

#25 - I swear you are always taking the piss out of people in the comments, but never mind me

Everyone expects people to lie to get prisony situations! any publicity is good publicity! try to make the most of it, then find her in jail and mock her! :D

I don't think you are of sound mind.....

Please, please mention that in your Amazon review of her book.

making other people seem like the bad person sorry one of them was you.

Maybe it's just me but the way this FML is worded is really confusing. Had to read it three times before understanding it.

OP is a lawyer, one of their previous clients has written a book trying to say they are innocent and ended up doing time for fraud. However the client didn't mention in the book that they confessed twice, one of those confessions was in court which would have removed any chance of being innocent. The client is blaming everyone else including OP for their sentence.

No, I think it's just you

@5, That's the way I understood it at first, but I wasn't sure if it made sense. I overthink. Thanks though.
