1st Case Do you think the defendant was depressed due to the separation of his parents? Why do you think his relationship with his mom weakened after the separation? What do you think causes him to act out in the way he does? 2nd Case The witnesses and the defendant were both telling different stories, How did this impact the case? Do you agree on the 30 hours of community service why or why not? If the defendants friend threw the first punch why hit the defendant instead of the victim?
