Man Accidentally Pleads Guilty

Posted on October 18, 2011


A man stunned his defence lawyer when at the start of his trial he pleaded guilty to murdering his girlfriend.

In appealing for a retrial, a Brisbane court heard that Bowan Taylor Wade was overcome by the occasion when he blurted out the wrong plea in court.

The Courier Mail reports that the trial was set down for seven days and Wade was then arraigned with everyone expecting him to plead not  guilty, but instead he pleaded guilty.

Luckily for him, he was granted a retrial. Here’s hoping he gets it right next time.
