One of the assignments in this course every semester is for students to observe a portion of a criminal or civil trial in a local courthouse. Due to COVID that assignment has been changed to observing portions of a trial shown on YouTube. For this assignment you will observe potions of the Sigfredo Garcia and Katherine Magbanua trial. Go to YouTube and enter the search term “Sigfredo Garcia and Katherine Magbanua murder trial”.
The trial took place over eleven days. The case begins with the opening statements of three attorneys: the prosecutor, Sigfredo Garcia’s attorney, and one of defendant Katherine Magbanua’s two attorneys. After that the prosecutor called her witnesses to testify. When the prosecutor finished calling her witnesses to the stand, the defendants’ attorneys called their witnesses. After that the attorneys presented their closing statements. Many witnesses were called to testify.
Background: Originally, three people were each charged with three counts in the killing of the victim. One of the three agreed to testify against the other two and in exchange for their testimony this individual received a reduced sentence. People that are referred to in the testimony include: Luis Rivera (Toto), Sigfredo Garcia (Tuto), Charlie Adelson, Harvey and Donna Adelson, Reggie Garcia (not related to Sigfredo Garcia), Dan Markel, Wendi Adelson (ex-wife of Dan Markel), Jessica- Rivera’s girlfriend, Katherine (Katy) Magbanua, Sedrick Nobles, and Special Agent Oscar Jimenez (FBI).
