Hansel and Gretel Are On Trial

Prompt

Hansel and Gretel were arrested and now they’re on trial for trespassing, robbery, littering, and destruction of property. The lawyers have interviewed witnesses and examined the evidence. Now they are about to give the closing arguments before the jury. Was it really life or death? Were they harmless lost children who got lost in the forest without food or shelter? Or were they dangerous, candy-crazed criminals who went out of their way to harass a harmless witch and destroy her home? You need to write the closing arguments for both the prosecution and defense. Be sure to present specific facts and sound reason to present why Hansel and Gretel should be found guilty or not guilty.
