The story so far...

Tonight you need to continue working on the prosecution's side of the case. We spent most of today's class, and yesterday's class, trying and failing to prove Whitney Grey's guilt using the evidence at hand. In order to have a chance at doing this, we must tell the story of July 4 through the eyes of a prosecuting attorney. That way, when Khalian (or Delissa, or any of our other prosecuting attorneys) points at the defendant, we'll know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he set the pub on fire.

Write the story of the case from the prosecution's perspective. Include persuasive evidence that Grey had the opportunity, knowledge and motive to commit the crime.

Include key facts in the case. Start with, "On the night of July 4...."

This can be a sequential list or a paragraph. It is worth 10 points, and is due on your desk at the start of tomorrow's class.
