Music or Criminal Mischief

You are sitting at trial accused of Criminal Mischief. Someone keyed your ex-boyfriend's car and broke both of his headlights. After your messy breakup, you were the natural suspect. The evidence is skimpy, but then the prosecutor pulls out your Iphone and starts playing Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats." She urges the jury to listen to the lyrics. "I dug my keys into the side of his pretty little supped up 4-wheeldrive, carved my name into his leather seats. Took a Louisville Slugger to both headlights. I slashed a hole in all four tires. Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats." The fact that you have a song about getting revenge on an ex-boyfriend by destroying his car, she argues, is evidence of your guilt. This may seem like an absurd situation, but it is exactly what happened to Anthony DeLeon.
