Sitting on a witness stand in court is something that no one ever wants to have have to do; it usually means you’re wrapped up in some sort of legal battle that’s going to require a lot of time and energy from you. There’s a ton of pressure, and often a great amount at stake.
Sometimes, a witness will give statements that shock the courthouse. Whether it’s because new information has come to light or even a confession of guilt is made, the witness stand is a nerve-racking place to find yourself.
During a small town trial, one elderly woman had quite the eyebrow-raising answers on the stand while being questioned by lawyers. The judge’s response to her testimony is perfect.

It must have been mortifying to be on the receiving end of that woman’s insults. You just never know what’s going to come out on that witness stand!
