        Criminal Case
       People v. Walker




As the acting prosecutors and defense it
    is your task to paper screen and
    potentially pick the jurors for the
              following trial!
The Case
• On the evening of June 16, Ralph Walker was
  arrested for robbery, a felony. The victim, Mary
  Gardiner, was confronted by a man wearing dark
  slacks and a beige jacket while she was on her
  way home from a political meeting. Threatening
  to “hurt her real bad,” the man demanded her
  money and Gardiner turned her wallet over to him.
  The police found Walker a few blocks away. His
  clothing matched the description, and Gardiner’s
  wallet was in his possession. He says he found
  the wallet on the street. The victim later identified
  him in a police lineup and said that even though it
  was dark that night, “I’m sure he’s the guy.”
Scene of the Crime
•Robbery is defined as the taking of
 property from a person against his
 or her will through violence or
