2018-2019 Mock Trial Case (Final Version Nov 5 2018) Includes all corrections made as of FEB 7, 2019 (rev. 2019.01.29) 59-R1 In accordance with the commitment, I was sentenced on April 1, 2016 to a 60-day term of imprisonment at Rikers Island, plus a two-year period of probation. I was released on May 28, 2016. Prior to being imprisoned, I had already established residency in my a unt’s apartment. Even though I was “residing” at Rikers Island for 2 months, my permanent residence was still my aunt’s apartment. Upon being released from Rikers, I was concerned about the Gotham Probation Department. I’ve heard they could be a real pain in the rear. I feared that Probation might not approve me residing with my elderly aunt and around other elderly individuals who are often victimized by unscrupulous miscreants. So, I told Probation that I would be residing with Sage. 9. Tatum Neal was my probation officer. My two-year period of probation expired on May 25, 2018. I was required to report to Officer Neal on the first Monday of the month, unless the particular Monday was a federal or state holiday, in which case I would report on the Tuesday. Would you believe Probation makes us pay $25.00 per visit?! Talk about criminal! Since I was faithful in keeping my appointments, Officer Neal never v isited me at Sage’s apartment. To play it safe, I receive some mail at Sage’s apartment and keep some personal items there as well, such as clothing and my sculptures. I figured I could get away with the little fib about where I resided because those guys in Probation try as best they can to stay in their offices, drinking coffee and pushing papers from one desk to the next. To be fair, they are overworked, each probation officer supervising hundreds of probationers at a given time. It’s known that they don’t visit ex -inmates who committed minor offenses like me, so long as we stop in the probation office once a month, pay the fee and provide proof that we are in school, working or looking for work. So, what’s the harm in a little white lie?! 10. Now, I know I am no angel. In addition to my petit larceny conviction, I’ve had other encounters with the law and have been incarcerated or on probation for minor offenses on several occasions in the past. In the early Fall of 2011, I received a one-year conditional discharge on a disorderly conduct conviction involving a barroom fight that spilled out into the street. I spent 45 days at Rikers Island in the late Fall of 2012 for second degree harassment and served a two-year period of probation in connection with that conviction. On a bogus fourth degree marihuana possession charge, I served six months in Rikers from February 2015 to the end of July 2015. Sometimes, trouble just finds you. 11. I hate to say anything bad about a person, but my aunt’s visiting nurse, Rivers Ebb, is a real piece of work! S/he was her nurse since September 2015. Nurse Ebb came by each day, including weekends, for two hours between noon and 2:00pm to make sure Aunt Barbra was taking her medication and

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
