Houston criminal defense lawyer Mark Bennett makes sure he follows through on those pesky little certificates of service, because he doesn’t want to be accused of a criminal offense, say, tampering with a governmental record. So when a prosecutor filed a motion, and swore s/he had served Mark but hadn’t, he asked:
Are you laboring under the delusive belief that [the D.A.] won’t file charges against you?
I’m pretty sure the prosecutor was laboring under the 100% correct belief that charges won’t be filed.
