"Sorry guys, but the trial has been canceled due to Clyde's baseball schedule. We can try again tomorrow."
"Stanley Yelnats IIII, please come to the front."
"I used to be an orphan. I used to live in that homeless shelter. I donated my shoes to that homeless shelter so the homeless shelter would get the money from buying the shoes in order to improve the quality of the homeless shelter."
Stanley's trial for supposedly stealing Clyde Livingston's shoes at the homeless shelter has been delayed due to Clyde's baseball schedule. Clyde Livingston had a very busy baseball schedule. Clyde should be coming to the trial in a few days.
"Th - That's not true! They fell out of the sky and hit me on the head I swear!"
"This boy had stolen the shoes off of the display at the homeless shelter! Then, he ran off while wearing them."
After multiple canceled trials due to the baseball schedule, the trial can finally begin. Stanley gets called to the front of the courtroom. Stanley sees Clyde already standing at the front of the room.
"Clyde, I agree with you. Your evidence is strong. Stanley! You are guilty of stealing the shoes off of the display at the homeless shelter!"
Clyde explained how he used to be an orphan and that he used to live in the same homeless shelter that he donated his shoes to. Stanley had never known that Clyde Livingston used to be an orphan. Stanley is shocked to hear Clyde's story.
"I'd rather go to Camp Green Lake, instead of jail ."
"Stanley, would you rather go to jail or Camp Green Lake? Either way, you'd be spending 18 months in whichever place you choose."
Clyde then explains that Stanley had stolen the shoes off of the display from the homeless shelter. However, Stanley states that they fell out of the sky and hit him on the head. Clyde then stated that Stanley ran off while wearing them.
The judge states that he agrees with Clyde. The judge states that Stanley is guilty. The judge doesn't believe that the shoes fell from the sky and hit Stanley on the head.
The judge asks Stanley if he would rather go to jail or go to Camp Green Lake. Stanley says he'd rather go to Camp Green Lake. Either way, he would be in jail, or Camp Green Lake for 18 months.
