Latin Speech

For our speech we have chosen to stand against the accused in the scenario with the sick father and his son.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I present our case against the accused. First, we shall outline the case.

The father drinks part of the medicine and says he has been poisoned. The son drinks the rest, but the father dies. The son is accused of parricide.

Lets take the case step by step. Firstly, the son was banished from home. Why? We can't be sure. However, it was suspected that, due to mental insecurity, he killed his mother.
