1.1 The case for the prosecution

Figure 2

The men known as The Sergeant and Fat Baz maintain that they are innocent of the crime of which they are accused during their interviews with DI Bullet and both plead not guilty at court.

The alibi offered by both men is not believed, as the only people that can verify where the two were at the time of the crime have prior criminal records.

The prosecution offer the following evidence:

  • statements taken from both witnesses
  • recordings of the interviews with both witnesses
  • the outcome of the identification procedures attended by both witnesses
  • the Photofits are not entered as evidence, but mention of their similarity to the two people accused is made in the opening statement of the prosecuting barrister.

This evidence is offered in support of the conclusions drawn by DI Bullet and of the guilt of the men known as The Sergeant and Fat Baz.
