What's the Verdict?: You're the Judge in 90 Tricky Courtroom Cases
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2004 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 128 pages
Armchair legal eagles will have a blast—and sharpen their IQs—as they decide who goes to jail and who beats the rap, in this fascinating collection of 90 true crime cases. The felonies range from malpractice to murder, and it’s up to you to figure out what the courts decided. All the facts of the case are laid out, along with the rules of law that apply. Watch out, though: sometimes there are two rulings, one from the original trial and another from the appeals court. In order to win, you have to come up with the second, final verdict. Simple instructions explain how to treat the cases as puzzles for one, or as a game of wits for a group.
