Judge Judy often spends a long time listening to the facts of each case presented to her, with both parties able to tell their side of the story.
On this occasion, however, she didn’t really have to do much digging. Because the accused accidentally admitted to have committed the crime.
We have to assume it was accidental, because if not then he’s stupendously stupid. For those who don’t understand what happens he denies there was an earpiece in the wallet… and there’s only one way he would know that.
I wonder if the guy is still confused to this day how Judge Judy knew he was guilty.
