A burglar breaks into the home of a prominent local lawyer.
He takes the lawyer's Christmas gifts from under the tree leaving the packages for the wife and children alone.
As he is leaving the house, he is apprehended by a policeman.
He confesses to what he has done but tells the policeman that he can't be arrested.
The policeman asks why, and he responds, "Because the law states that I'm entitled to the presents of an attorney."
