Words of wisdom from the Kaplan PMBR dude

At the end of my FL Crim Pro video, the professor told a little story. It went something like this:

There one was a judge named Kenesaw Mountain Landis up in Illinois. He was a very mean judge. Apparently he was so mean, he became the first commission of the MLB becuase they wanted a mean commissioner. Anyway, one day he was sentencing a guy to 10 years in prison (which, apparently, in that day was like a jail sentence) and the guy he was sentencing said "Judge, I'm old, I can't do ten years!!" to which the judge responded "do the best you can."

And with that the Kaplan guy said he says the same to us, "do the best you can."

Not going to lie, I kinda liked that story.
