Court Case 9.1.17 by Josh

Yesterday we had a court case where we – the jury – had to decide if Joe was guilty of stealing the box of jewels.

Mr Walker (the prosecution) argued that Joe was guilty and made the following statements:

  • Joe should have left it on the beach
  • He should have reported it to the police

He also said: Honesty Is the Best Policy.

Miss Dite (the defence) argued Joe was innocent and made the following statements:

  • It was the owner’s fault for leaving it there in the first place
  • It had no name on the box

She also said: Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers.

In my opinion, I thought Joe wasn’t guilty because he didn’t intend to find the jewels.
