    Can someone help me?

    Hello, I am doing a mock trial at school. I have to prove that a man is guilty of possessing a firing arm as well as pointing it at someone. Here is the link for a background of the case. http://www.ojen.ca/sites/ojen.ca/fil...l_Wilson_0.pdf
    I want to say that;
    1) He had the intent to clean the weapon before the cops came to the crime scene
    2) He was seen by a witness with the gun
    3) He laughed when his friends pointed the gun at the neighbor
    4) When the neighbor confronted him about the loud music, he threatened to have his family removed from the complex. So there is a great chance he pointed the gun at the neighbor
    I want tell know if my points are good enough to build off of that. I also want to mention that the accused was illegally drinking alcohol during the party, and since he already committed a crime by consuming alcohol under aged, there is a great chance that he pointed the gun at one of the witness a well as possessed the gun. If the defense says that him consuming alcohol is not relevant, what can I say to counter that? Thanks to anyone who posted!

    I take it he is the prosecution and thats what the prosecution does.

    But if strugling to find reasons or evidence to support the accused being guilty then there is no case to answer

    i failed here, feel free to read for laughs


    finding him innocent is easy (as i so gloriously failed), finding him guilty is....difficult. the mock doesn't make it easy either. its quite strict with its guidelines.
    peer pressure, Joe has no history with the police. whilst all the guys at his party supposedly do. he admits getting the gun after everyone else held up theirs. under aged drunk teen.....under aged drunk host being belittled at his front door! he probably wanted to be "in with the crowd"
    i don't know Canada's laws though......so im swing at air here. i cant add to your points, but general law of court house. hit them with as much as you can (this is where the aforementioned guidelines come in and make it hard)

    in the U.S. the mother would take the rap for the firearm, and the underage party. now since it was at his place, he should be in charge for the loud noise, party and even his friends screwing around with the guns. i'm not familiar with canadian law so sorry there


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    HOW CAN YOU WIN WHEN THE GUIDELINE SAYS "Stick to the script." !!!!!!
    i don't get it.

    i don't know if you can use them but:
    Section 63 (1)(2) of the Criminal Code
    Section 86 (1) of the Criminal Code
    Section 244 (1) of the Criminal Code

    i can't find anywhere (implied or otherwise) him[joe] saying what he did with the gun after "trying" to give it back. and the guidelines seemingly forbid you from digging into all the holes in the story. i hate restrictions!
