Don't bribe an Irish jury
Murphy, a lawyer, bribed a man on his client's jury to hold out for a charge of manslaughter, as opposed to the charge of murder that had been brought by the state. The jury was out for several days before they returned with the manslaughter verdict.
When Murphy paid the corrupt juror, he asked him if he had had a very difficult time convincing the other jurors to see things his way.
"Sure did," the juror replied. "The other eleven wanted to acquit."
