Storyboard Text

  • (Gault making an obscene phone call to his neighbor Mrs. Cook)
  • Gault making an obscene phone call to his neighbor Mrs. Cook.
  • As a result Mrs. Cook reported him but his parents didn't know what had happened.
  • Yes mother.
  • I cannot find him! You should look for him.
  • Yes Ma'am we have him in custody. His court hearing is tomorrow.
  • I was told from the Lewis family that my son was arrested.
  • Mrs. Cook wasn't present at any of the court hearings. Gault was forced to be in juvenile detention for six years while an adult accused of the same crime would only have to spend two months in jail and pay a fine of $50. They didn't record anything that was going on. Faults parents didn't like this answer so they filled a petition for a writ of habeas corpus.
  • The petition was dismissed by both the Superior Court of Arizona and the Arizona Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court accepted their request and unanimously agreed that his rights were violated and overruled another court case.
