Dear Members of the Jury, I submit for your consideration evidence of the damage to my property.
Exhibit A: hole dug near garden boundary (possible escape route?)
Exhibit B: Mud and holes where grass and plants used to be
Exhibit C: Even more damage: holes were lawn used to be
You, the Jury, are asked to be lenient with this first time offender. Bear in mind she comes from a good family and is suitably remorseful (look at that little face!) Thank you.
