Not Guilty

During a murder trial in Cork in the nineteenth century there was a sensation when the man who was supposed to have been murdered actually turned up in the courtroom. The judge immediately ordered the jury, consisting of twelve Corkmen, to return a verdict of 'not guilty'. After an hour the jury returned and the foreman announced that they had found the defendant guilty.
'How on earth could you reach such a verdict', asked the judge, Svhen the supposed murdered man is here in court?' 'Yes, we know that your honour', answered the foreman, 'but we think the defendant is the man who stole my brother's horse two years ago'.
