Opening Statement

Your Honor, our team is the defensive side, representing the defendant in this case of the State vs Campbell. What we know right now is that there was a bomb located outside the patio by the cafeteria in the garbage can. The Crew would always hang around there before and after lunch on a daily basis. This gang craves trouble and is always looking for attention. Casey was seen that day walking by the patio. But no one knows for sure, there is absolutely no evidence that he was the host of the bomb. It could of been his schedule arrangements. Casey failed chemistry and Sawyer was the best out of the class. Casey wouldn’t have the knowledge to build the bomb. The facts will show that Casey is not guilty of possessing explosive or destructive devices in a public place of with intent to murder.
