Criminal Law Mock Trial Scenario: R. v. Wilson
A 16-year old is charged with possession of a firearm and pointing of a firearm at a party in the accused’s apartment. Four witnesses have provided evidence. Suitable for a non-academic event or academically-focused exercise, this scenario presents the opportunity to discuss current debates about crime and the recent changes to the available sentences for gun possession. Debates about philosophies of crime control (e.g. three strikes, law and order, restoration, etc.) can also be developed from this scenario.
