ACreate an Outline for the following information.
Use the required speech outline format shown below. A blank one is provided for copying and pasting in this weeks module.
As the defense attorney in a car theft case, you need to prepare your closing argument to the jury before it begins its deliberations. After reviewing evidence from the trial, you decide to stress the following points to demonstrate the innocence of your client:
The stolen car was found abandoned three hours after the theft with the engine still warm; at the time the car was found, your client was at the airport to meet the flight of a friend who was flying into town.
Lab analysis of muddy shoe prints on the floor mat of the car indicates that the prints came from a size 13 shoe; your client wears a size 10.
Lab analysis shows the presence of cigarette smoke in the car, but your client does not smoke.
The only eyewitness to the crime, who was 50 feet from the car, said the thief “looked like” your client; yet the eyewitness admitted that at the time of the theft she was not wearing her glasses, which had been prescribed for improving distance vision.
The car was stolen at about 1 p.m.; your client testified that he was in a small town 250 miles away at 11 a.m.
In a statement to police, the eyewitness described the thief as blond; your client has red hair.
As you work on the outline of your speech, you see that these points can be organized into three main points, each with two supporting points. Compose an outline that organizes the points in this manner.
