What Not to Wear
Saying little and wearing a black T-shirt emblazoned with the image of mobster Al Capone, a Little Village man who allegedly owned the gun his 2-year-old nephew used to shoot a playmate appeared in court Tuesday for a bond hearing.
Yes, there are sometimes when we are judged by the clothes we wear. A court appearance is one of those times. When my sister was a public defender, she would tell me amazing stories of people who would use a court appearance to express their inner ‘personality’ or lack of common sense. And she would try, often unsuccessfully, to tell her clients that wearing a borrowed suit or sweater or whatever is better than appearing in court in a T-shirt bearing an assinine statement.
