"My offer is pretty straightforward. Ten years in prison or an enlistment in the United States Marine Corps. Not that you asked, but an enlistment is five years. That's half, in case you're wondering. And you'd be doing something useful in the service with that brain of yours other than counting the weeks, months, and years until your release. So ... ten years or an enlistment. At the end of which, I will personally expunge your record, and you may go about making your way in this petty world of ours."
