In the minds of Paddy's friends, his fate was sealed when the judge asked if there was any person present who could vouch for his character. A hush fell on the court—Paddy said after wards: "It was that quiet you could have picked a pin up!"—then up spake Patrick: "Sure, yer honour, thero's the police inspector yonder!"
