[Trial By Jury 2] - Need a Defense Lawyer! - Sign Up.

Postby Ace Rimmer » Tue Nov 10, 2009 6:57 pm

Alright, it's time to get a new trial underway, this time with actual physical evidence in addition to reports and eye witness accounts. This time, I hope to make it a bit more realistic, without getting too involved (creating reports, etc), and hope it will be twice as fun to participate and spectate. I.e., I hope there's genuine tension with regard to whether or not The Accused is innocent or guilty and the jury has something to debate this time. The roles will be as follows:

Trial:
  1. Ace "the" Rimmer, Judge
  2. Xocrates, Prosecutor
  3. Who Knows?, Defense Attorney
  4. elexis, The Accused, First Degree Murder, Embezzlement. (trial pertains to the murder charge only) Top Salesman for Delay Industries
  5. Deepsmeg, Witness 2, Salesman, Delay Industries (co-worker)
  6. Vicious, Witness 3, Hears gunshot, finds The Victim, makes Emergency Call, reports The Accused fleeing scene.

Jury:
  1. [Vacant Spot] Foreman, Juror 1:
  2. Feud, Juror 2:
  3. Mas Tnega, Juror 3:
  4. prophile, Juror 4:
  5. Wasgood, Juror 5:
  6. [Vacant Spot] Juror 6:


Victim: NeatNit, Salesman, Delay Industries.


First Degree Murder will be defined as: An intentional killing by means of poison, or by lying in wait, or by any other kind of willful, deliberate and premeditated action.

Use bold to sign-up below (you may choose your role), and for this trial, please, no motions for dismissal, etc. We're going on the assumption that The Accused is brought in according to customary procedure and is being tried in accordance with established law.

Also, I can only create so much evidence and so forth. There will be at least:

Emergency call transcript
Forensic Case Report
Lab Report (DNA)
Examiners Report
Responding Officer's Report
Detective's/Arresting Officer's Report
List of item's obtained via warrant from The Accused's residence
Ballistics Report

There may be others, such as sketch of the crime scene (hand drawn) and diagram of possible angle of fatal gunshot. I have a basic outline of the story but have not began manufacturing the reports. I'll also have to put a time line and individual story together for each person, so it may be a week or so before this starts. I really do not want to be anything but an observer this time, so somebody step up and be a prosecutor.

One last note: Please, no silly antics this time, like busting out of jail and brandishing a gun in the courtroom, or holding press conferences and making outlandish statements that are irrelevant to the trial, I believe that greatly reduces the entertainment value. Let's just play the role, in the courtroom. Once the evidence has been created and stories formed, I'll let the Prosecutor, Judge, and Defense see all the evidence. It will be up to the defense to inform The Accused. I will personally give each person their story. The innocence/guilt of The Accused will be determined prior to trial, and only he/she will truly know which it is, until a verdict is proclaimed.

Juror (work precludes anything more involved).

Is this perhaps the trial of jelco for the murder of Mufasa? If so, lynch him.

Ok.

Regarding the number of jurors, I don't think enough people would sign up to provide 12 + the Trial roles. If all the roles do fill up, and more are interested, then I'll all them to the jury line up.

Now, we just need three enterprising people to play the roles of Judge, Prosecutor, and Defense. The jury sign-ups will remain open until they are filled (even if that's during/after the trial).
