Hey, Cory, I researched and found an article about a man named Harold J. Stewart, a 42-year-old high school dropout, who defended himself in a murder case in Prince George's County, whereas he was accused of beating a sleeping man to death with a baseball bat. (Casteneda, 2008) Stewart’s pro se trial only lasted three days; where is the fairness in this prosecution? The jury only deliberated for about an hour. It seems like Stewart never had a chance; considering, at the most, it takes at least more than a day even to hear evidence in a murder trial. It was faith because the jurors found Stewart not guilty of first-degree murder and not guilty of second-degree murder. (Casteneda, 2008) You know there is a saying a man who represents himself

At the station, a fight broke out in one of the trains and when the train stopped the fight started again outside of the train at one of the stops. While they were fighting on the train the BART officers were called. The officers came and arrested everyone that was in the fight.

Jeffrey Robert MacDonald was a U.S. Army officer and a medical doctor who was convicted in 1979 of murdering his pregnant wife and two daughters in February 1970. The reason why I chose this case is because this murder case is said to be one of America’s most enduring murder mysteries and the main topic of a best-selling book. Not only this, but I also chose this case because it took about 9 years for Macdonald to be finally convicted and the U.S army got involved and made their own investigation because they didn’t believe his story. This meant that this case had many twists and turns, making it a mysterious case that’s very intriguing and wanting to know more about.
