If you ever needed another reason to not find yourself on the wrong side of the law, these funny courtroom sketches will remind you there are many things you really don’t want on your permanent record. Based on the funny police sketches created over the years, one surmises that law enforcement encounters many problems with their bad courtroom sketches. Court sketches should cleanly and accurately portray the goings-on of a courtroom, yet some drawings raise many more questions than answers. Would Naomi Campbell approve of this depiction of her? Why are some peoples’ necks over a foot long? And why is Barry Bonds missing one?
At best, these courtroom sketch fails induce laughter; at worst, they exude the unnerving qualities of creepy kid drawings. But while most of these celebrities look like bootleg versions of themselves, most of them also kind of deserve it; after all, they’re in court to be taken to justice.
