Maybe you're missing how a prosecutor works?

More likely, they'll feature a section at your trial claiming that the piece of paper you pulled from your pocket contains secret terrorist plans and they'll present it all dolled up with a lot of other circumstantial evidence to "prove" you're a spy, traitor and all around waste of flesh. If they take a mind to. And maybe the jury will buy and maybe they won't... but in the meantime you'll have been spending any savings you had paying lawyers to defend you, or relying on the expertise of a newly minted lawyer who may or may not know his/her/its ass from its elbow.

People are not afraid of camera because they think there innocent but because they think there guilty.
