Case 1: Do you believe that the defendant was lying while on trial? Take into account that she admitted to have a history of lying. What role do you believe this defendants mother had in her case? Do you think the mother was being over protective or no?
Case 2: Where you sympathized by the fact that this defendant had learning disabilities and an incarcerated father? If so why and if not why not.

Case 1: Upon finding yourself in a heated argument or when circumstances apply where one is lead by adrenaline, we seem to find the slightest details in a blur. Once under oath it becomes difficult to lie undetected, the narrative might seem fragmented but this does not indicate a lie. Although the placement in her story is questionable, it is not an immediate cause to blame a lie.

I don't think she las lying, I'm sure there was some truth she wasn't giving light to but if any of us were in that situation we'd probably be in the same scenario. Her story was kind of broken up but necessarily i don't believe she was lying to get out of punishment. As for her mother, i believe she was just trying to make up for not being there for her daughter when she should've been. So I think it was a pity thing. Just like any mother would, she was only looking out for her daughter, not because she is trying to cover for her, but because it's instinct, she doesn't want to see her daughter get into any more trouble regardless of what she did.

I believe the defendant was lying because she she had a history of lying to her parents. In addition, when she was asked how can we prove she is being honest she could not respond. The defendants mother was protective because she even turned in her assignments which isn't teaching her anything. In case 2 I was sympathized by the defendant's learning disability and incarcerated father because even if that isn't a excuse for what she did I can understand why she behaved the way she did.

Case 1: I, personally, do believe the defendant was lying while on trial. She seemed to change her story as if she had something to hide. Also, she did admit that she would lie to her parents in order to get out of trouble which led me to believe that she would also lie to the jury while on trial.

Case 1: I think she was lying in the trial because she said she has lied to her parents before and she was speechless when they asked her how we could believe her if she has lied before.

Case 1: I personally believe that the defendant was lying while on trial because there had been moments in which she would change her story when she was asked a question in which she felt stuck on answering. She had also admitted to lying and being able to get away with it so she probably thought she could get away with it on trial. I believe that th mother was not only over protective but also controlling.

Case 1: Although the defendant admitted that she has a history of lying, I don't believe she was lying on trial because she knew she was under oath and she knew what would happen if she went against it. I believed that the mother was being overprotective because she would turn in the defendant's work instead of trying to get her to turn them in herself.

Case 1: I think she could've been both lying and not lying. She did have a history of lying to get out of trial, and at times the story she would tell didn't quite match up, but I think she was telling the truth from time to time.

1st Trial: I do believe she was lieing to the jury, she may have been extending the play of events in her favor. As for the mother, she was being overprotective. She would turn in her daughter's work and would even answer some of her questions. Although mothers always want to care for their children, there is a line that shouldn't be crossed.

Case 1: I do believe that the defendant was lying. The defendant confessed to lying to her own parents so there is a high possibility that she may have lied while on trial. I feel the mother shouldn't have been that involved in her daughters academics, such as turning in assignments for her daughter.

Case 1: I believe the young lady on trail was not lying to certain extent due to her history of lying to her parents, peers, etc.her mom was not being overprotective, she was only trying to help her in any manner that would benefit them both, yet, without trust there is no point in defending her. Although the evidence differed slightly, I do believe she was telling the majority of the truth to the jury and all present in the court

In Case #1 I believe I bel the person in question was being dishonest due to her history of lying and the way she presented her answer. The mother was being overprotective in order to defend her daughter.

Case #1:I do believe the defendant was lieing with the way that she confessed how she has lied in the past and also by the way she answered her questions.
