We used to call it Frog Law when I worked there.

Ten out of twelve gets you a guilty verdict there, life in prison for selling any amount of heroin, seventeen years old is an adult for crimes, and no indictments for anything less than a capital crime, for instance, to see how different the Code Napoleon can be from English Common Law.
