To the dutiful members of the jury, my team and I thank you for being a part of this painfully tedious process. It is up to you and your civic duty to establish the fate of this case and this man. We highly suggest that you listen to your heart, do you personally believe that this man should be exonerated? Should we allow a man, a creation of the slums and wittingly knows his way around a knife, walk free? There is no doubt that there’s a level of surmounting evidence that he is guilty, he has the track record of a criminal and it was about time that he would murder someone. Imagine being in his shoes, constantly abused by the man who should’ve loved him, growing up in a poor environment, and sent to reform school. Imagine that one day, he…show more content…
Despite this, all of the criminals I have worked with, I have never seen a more guiltier man walk into that courtroom. Do you believe that after this trial and if you decide to acquit him, that this man will not get worse? The thing about this boy is that he is tough and angry, like a puppy who has been kicked too many times. Before you know it, that puppy decides to bite the next person who tries to kick it.

As a lawyer, I know how these criminals think and how they work. They can become nervous as it is their first time, but despite this, it is undoubtedly their last time. Additionally, all of you have seen the two witnesses brought into court, they have both seen or heard the murder transpire. Even then, we have proved that you can see through the windows of the el train, and then the old man’s deposition accompanies the old lady’s. Tell me, who are you going to trust more? The man on trial who is trying to avoid being put on the chair, and will lie or will do anything to save his life? Or the elderly who have no such reason or intent to lie to you? These two witnesses should be enough to persuade you that this man is guilty and that he murdered his
