He fervently wished he could go back in time, undo that one moment’s madness.
The other inmates lowered their eyes as the cell door opened and he backed out. Outside, the warders turned him round and backed him into a prison van which smelled of urine and fear. It soon reversed into the court’s parking space and he was led unceremoniously into the courtroom.
He sat down as the Judge sat. Five years? Sentence passed.
The Judge summed up; the defence, then the prosecution put their cases. He was led out backwards into the van before the court slowly emptied.
