. . . but I'm not guilty this time!"
One of my favorite responses: Q: Why haven't you paid your fines? A: I don't work & my husband's disabled. Q: What's the nature of your husband's disability? A: Oh he's not....he's just lazy and sorry. Priceless.
I can't tell you the number of times a client has wanted to use this as a defense when I was a public defender: Listen, I pled guilty every other time I was arrested. Since I am not pleading guilty this time, that should be proof that I didn't commit the crime.
