After watching The Court System – Evidence and Procedure media, you have seen how a criminal trial has proceeded. You have heard from several different people in the courtroom and have noticed that they play different roles. You have seen some evidence. Now, it is your turn!
For this assignment, review the evidence and procedures you have witnessed and decide on a verdict: Analyze one potential issue (not shown in the simulation) that could surface at each stage of the trial process (arraignment through verdict) that would impact a case. Describe possible errors and potential case impact in the context of the simulation. For example, how do the issues of reasonable doubt, the admissibility of certain evidence, and the impact of Miranda all play a role in helping you (and the jury) reach a verdict?
