Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Calling the case of the Yangchen versus Gabriel. Are both sides ready?
Ready for the defense, Your Honor
Will the clerk please swear in the jury?
Will the jury please stand and raise your right hand? Do each of you swear that you will fairly try the case before this court, and that you will return a true verdict according to the evidence and the instructions of the court, so help you, God? Please say “I do”. You may be seated
The defendant has been charged with murder. The defendant was arrested after he killed a man in an alley. The evidence I present will prove to you that the defendant is guilty as charged.
Under the law my client is presumed innocent until proven guilty. During this trial, you will hear no real evidence against my client. You will come to know the truth: that Gabriel was just defending himself from a robbery. Gabriel was just trying to defend himself before the robber kills him.Therefore my client is not guilty
