A man who was sentenced to five years in prison by a judge heard yesterday that his sentence would
be changed. The unfortunate man, Duncan Smith, had been on trial for stealing a bicycle and then
hitting a woman on the head. Mr Smith had never denied taking the bike, but claimed that he had
thought it was his as he had an identical one. He admitted hitting the woman but said he had only done
it because she had hit him first. The problem with Mr Smith’s sentencing came when the jury were
reading out their verdict. At the exact moment the foreman of the jury read out ‘Not guilty’ a woman
sitting at the front shouted something. The judge didn’t hear the word ‘Not’ and thought the jury had
found Mr Smith guilty.

Duncan Smith (31) wouldn’t ____________________ the bike, if he (32) ____________________
one that was exactly the same.
If the woman (33) ____ hit ________________ him first, he (34) ____ admitted ________________
have hit her.
If the woman (35) ____________________ something, then the judge (36) ____________________
the correct verdict.
If the judge (37) ____________________ the word ‘Not’, then he wouldn’t have sentenced Mr Smith
to five years in prison.
