Storyboard Text

  • On a quiet afternoon in San Francisco, Bobby Fernandez was fatally shot by Trevor White.
  • YOU WILL SERVE A LIFE TERM!
  • Trevor was not told his rights as he was taken in and was interviewed. He confessed to the crime he had committed entirely.
  • The Magistrate Judge determined Trevor would await his trial while being held in jail. The US Marshal arrested him and had him put in a cell!
  • I AM FREE!
  • Being heard for the first time in District Court (Original Jurisdiction), Trevor was sentenced to a life term! His lawyer wanted to appeal the court's decision so he went to the Court of Appeals in the Californian circuit.
  • With Appellate Jurisdiction, the Court of Appeals revised the case and a Judge wrote the official Opinion. Trevor's case will be remanded and sent back to District Court.
  • This time around, a US Attorney represented the Californian government against Trevor, they eventually lost the case. These infamous trials set a precedent that law enforcement must state a citizen's rights upon detainment.
