Presenting Your Case

As in all trials, the City will present its case first by calling witnesses to testify against you.

After each prosecution's witness has finished his/her testimony, you will have the right to cross-examine him/her. Your examination must be in the form of a question and you must not argue with the witness. Do not attempt to tell your side of the story at this time. You will have an opportunity to do so later in the trail. After the prosecution has presented its case, you may present your case. You have the right to call any witness who knows anything about the incident and to introduce exhibits such as photographs and diagrams.
