“So, are you blaming the robbery on this Orchid?” The D.A. asked with a disapproving sniff.
“No, sir. I did it.”
Jason’s lawyer gasped. Shaking his head, he voiced his objections, but his heart wasn’t in it.
“I planned and completed the robbery. What I did not do,” Jason spoke directly to the judge. “I did not kill those people. My plans, my methods, they’re always clean. I don’t hurt anyone and I don’t kill. I steal, Your Honor. I’m a thief, that’s a fact I don’t deny. But I never wanted anyone hurt. Orchid took the loot, shot me and left me for dead. She shot the others, killing all of them. She set me up to take the fall.”
