Mock trial .: JU5-28/2013E-PDF

"A criminal trial unfolds before a single judge, who is in some cases assisted by a jury composed of 12 jurors. Defence counsel represents the accused, who is presumed innocent. Crown counsel acts on behalf of the prosecution, presenting evidence to the court to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty. This is done by, among other things, having witnesses describe what they saw, heard or experienced. The trial ends with a verdict declaring the accused guilty or not guilty. If the verdict is guilty, a sentence is then imposed by the judge. Please note that the enclosed documents are intended solely as instructions for a game created to make the legal process more accessible to school groups”--p. [1].
