Order Details
Citing appropriate research, cases or examples advise in no more than 2,500 words on the evident issues for consideration arising out of the following facts:
Pat leaves her husband, Rodney, and goes to live with George and his twelve 12 year old son, Bart.
Rodney and his brother, Delroy, are jointly charged with assaulting Bart, seriously wounding George, and attempting to kidnap Pat.
The prosecution intend to call as eye-witnesses to all the offences:
Pat;
Bart, and
Scott, a neighbor, to testify that George told him immediately after the incident, ‘Rod’s brother stabbed me while he grabbed the child. I could hear Pat screaming after what they had done to her. I’m finished now; look after my boy…..’ George then lapsed into a coma from which he has not yet recovered.
Rodney and Delroy both wish to call Delroy’s wife, Denise, to give evidence in their defense. Denise is estranged from Delroy and is reluctant to testify for the defense.
