I'm being asked to look a criminal case from any period. I have to use the media to answer these questions(1) Who is the defendant? (2) Who is the plaintiff? (3) What role does the state play in the trial? (4) Who represents the interests of the state in the trial? (5) Is this a civil or criminal case? What standard of proof must the prosecutor meet to realize a guilty verdict? (6) Who represents the interests of the defendant? (7) Are the prosecutor and defense attorney stating their cases objectively or are they overstating their respective cases? (8) Provide a brief critical analysis of what you observed. Does the process work as you expected? Are the objectives of the trial consistent with the objectives from question 1,a) above? Are there other objectives
How should I structure my response?
