It is a causal morning in San Francisco on September 15, 2014, when William Fitzgerald, an avid gun advocate, is walking to the car dealership to purchase a new car.
William gets to the dealership and finds the car he wants, a Cadillac Escalade. He attempts to negotiate with the dealership until the owner, Sam, throws him out for unruly behavior.
William is upset with Sam for throwing him out and not giving him the desired price on his car, so he pulls out a gun and shoots him out of anger. Soon, William realizes what he has done, and flees the scene. Little does he know, he forgot the weapon in his time of shock!
When the police officer arrives on the scene, and the body has been removed from the premises. To her astonishment, she notices a gun on the ground. She has found the murder weapon! This is known as individual evidence. The suspect was found in his home, willing to comply with officers for the crime he still felt guilty about.
William has been discovered, as the murder weapon was found and a fingerprint scan has confirmed he is the killer. He has been in jail in the past, and his fingerprints were on file. He did not have enough money for an attorney, so he chose to defend himself on trial. He has been found guilty by the jury. Bail has been set at $1 million for this murder. The arraignment occurred on September 17, 2014 and they went to trial on September 30, 2014.
William will spend the remainder of his life serving a life sentence, due to committing a criminal felony.
