Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: Judges sentence criminal defendants, but they also can marry people right? So that means I could possibly have the judge in the criminal firearms case in which I am a defendant marry me and my girlfriend after he sentences me?

Answer: Correct! (News OK, Oklahoma judge hands down prison sentence, then presides over nuptials)

2) Question: I received $137 in speeding tickets due to red light cameras in my town. It took me 6 hours of folding but I plan to pay the tickets off with 137 dollar bills folded into origami pigs and stuffed into a donut box. Get it? Pigs? Donuts? Ha! Can I do this?

Answer: Yes, but be prepared that the police cashier may make you unfold every one of the bills. (ClickOnDetroit, Man pays $137 ticket with 137 origami pigs)

3) Question: We have installed expensive red light cameras in our town, but people keep vandalizing the cameras, shooting them with marbles, lighting them on fire, etc. Is there such a thing as cameras that monitor other red light cameras, so we can catch the vandals? If so, we want one!

Answer: Of course! (Mike Rosenwald, In Prince George's, cameras to monitor speed cameras. Really.)
