State v. Lawrence, Second Edition

State v. Lawrence, Second Edition

As Gale Fitzgerald walked toward her house from the bus stop, she felt a sharp tug on her purse, and after a short struggle, she was thrown to the ground while her attacker ran off with her purse. On July 15, the defendant James Lawrence was arrested while attempting to snatch the purse of off-duty officer Sonia Henderson. The defendant has now been charged with theft and robbery for Gale Fitzgerald's mugging. Lawrence waived his Miranda rights, and gave a statement saying he was on a date the night of the incident, a story which Chelsea Williams corroborated. He still stands trial for theft, which is a felony punishable by up to ten years in jail. This is a good file for the basic trial advocacy classroom. There are two witnesses for both the plaintiff and the defendant.
