The world has rediscovered a clip from an old “Judge Judy” episode, in which a man being accused of stealing a young woman’s wallet incriminates himself in 12 seconds.
Perfectly timed for #ThrowbackThursday, social media users and media outlets are busy recirculating this quick laugh that hit the web in 2010.
Judge Judy, real name Judith Sheindlin, asks 18-year-old plaintiff Ginny Paradeza to describe what was in her purse when it was allegedly stolen, and they both get a pleasant surprise when one of the two young men Paradeza is accusing answers the question.
