Pathfinder HS students participating in Mock Trial argumentative speaking
This week at Pathfinder High School, Mrs. Hanfman's fearless LA 11 scholars are embarking on the mock trial of Robert Durst v. The State of California as a part of our argumentative speaking and writing unit.
The prosecution team (Saffron Wilkinson, Kelsie Colter, Allen Webb) is seeking life in prison in the murder of Susan Berman, while the defense team (Cherokee Tschannen, Keegan Robinson, Kelsie Hachtel) is trying to prove that Robert Durst is not guilty by reason of insanity.
The Jury (Victoria Rivera, Avery Cox and Curtis Lucas) have their work cut out for them. The Honorable Judge Brilee Forton is presiding. And the extremely brave and patient Mark Watkins is acting as expert witness Edgar Allenington!
