I wonder what Julio wanted to know why and what about the murder trial?
Julio told Theo that Julio's cousin said that he saw a person go into the house of where the murder was and the person looked similar to Mr.Duffy(the suspect that probably did the murder). Julio's cousin worked at the same golf course that Mr.Duffy was on the day of the murder. The cousin saw a random man drive onto the patio of the house of the murder. The man jumped from his golf cart, walked to the back door, quickly took of his shoes, opened the door and went inside. The man came out of the house not that long before he walked into the house. The man then scanned around to see if anyone saw, but he didn't know that Julio's cousin was watching him. The man walked around the patio for a minute, took his time, put the two gloves that he was wearing into his golf bag,put his shoes back on, then hopped into his golf cart and took off.
The paragraph that I just wrote was on pages 110-113
I wonder what Theo wants to talk to uncle Ike about? p.(130)
Theo wanted to talk to uncle Ike about what happened with Julio's cousin, but Theo couldn't tell Ike about the whole story because he made a promise to Julio and the cousin that he wouldn't tell anyone about what the cousin saw. Theo is basically asking Ike about what he should or could do about the witness that saw a man go into the house of the murder. p.(134,136)
In the murder case of Mr.Duffy, his lawyer Clifford Nance is too good for Hogan(a lawyer that is proving that Mr. Duffy is guilty). Mr.Hogan has nothing to explain to the jury about Mr.Duffy being guilty. But Theo thinks Mr.Duffy is guilty and wants to prove that he is guilty.
The last idea that I just wrote is on p.(140)
"Two policies were purchased, one insuring the life of Mrs.Myra Duffy, and the other for Mr.Peter Duffy. Both were for $1 million.Both policies replaced existing policies that would pay $500,000 in the event of either death." p.(154)
I think that Theo always wants help people with there problems, not just his friends but other people around. He wants to be a good lawyer. I also feel that when Theo helps someone out with his/her problem he feels good about it. p.(139)
Julio told Theo that his cousin found the person who walked into the house of the murder's golf gloves in a trash can because the cousin saw that same person throw them out, so he took them. p.(164)
Theo thought that the man that had the gloves could have killed Mrs.Duffy with his bare hands. So there could have been a hair from Mrs.Duffy's head on the golf gloves. p.(170)
Ike picked Theo up from school very early because Ike told Theo that they are going to the courtroom to tell Boone & Boone about everything that Theo heard from Julio and tell the Boones what Julio's cousin found in the trash can. p.(180)
When Theo told his parents about what Julio's cousin saw and found, The Boones wanted Judge Gantry to know about this mystery witness and what he saw and found. So the Boones are speaking to Gantry in his office on p.(196).
P.(225) Theodore's dad wants to find Julio's cousin and convince him to go to the witness stand and tell his story about what he saw.
I think Julio's cousin will not go to the witness stand and tell his story because he is an illegal immigrant and he thinks if he comes forward he will get arrested.p.(225)
Judge Gantry said at the trial on Monday, that there is a mistrial,or that the trial is over. Everyone was shocked by what the judge said. Gantry then said that the trial will restart in June. p.(258)
Theo told Julio that Bobby(the cousin)has to come forward to tell the police or anyone that is working in the murder trial about what he saw and found. p.(234-255)
Bobby went to Judge Gantry to tell him exactly what the man looked like who went into the murder house and what he was wearing. Judge Gantry wanted to know exactly who this guy was from what Bobby saw. p.(254-255)
I think it was a great idea for Judge Gantry to make a mistrial in the case, so Bobby can tell everyone in the courthouse about what he saw. p(258)
Theo was always reminded by his mom what day
it is. 44
Ike started the Boone And Boone before Theo was born 49
Ike is identified as the fancy person in a suit
Theo is nervous for the case and can't sleep or eat. p. 58
Someone stole the victim's jewelry
There is no evidence of the crime scene
It seems that the thief attacked the victim with his hands because he didn't have aweapon
Mr Cheepe specializes in investigations
It seems that the thief who stole the victim's items left things scattered on the crime scene
"Theodore Boone was an only child and for that reason he usually ate breakfast alone" Does something happen because the author is using the word was.
"One day Theo dreamed of being a famous trial lawyer.......The next day he dreamed of being a great judge."Theo has a big mind and it seems that Theo really likes the courtroom.
Theodore gets along well very good with his parents he is always respectful to them.
Theodore is a very smart boy he has a good attitude and it does not seem like he would do anything wrong
Why did Julio want to learn about the murder trial maybe he knows something.
Does judge Gantry like to take walks in the dark?
I think theo will be a very big contribution to the murder trial.
Theodore is very brave for getting involved with the trial.
Paco is suprised that Theo is a kid
First judge Gantry says the trail was over then he says it will restart in June. P. 258
I am surprised a lot that a kid is so interested in the court and law I would probably fall asleep half way through the court trial.
"My cousin said he was pretty sure the man walked just like the man he saw enter the house." He might be on to something.
Theo is very nervous he can not sleep or eat.
Theodore does not back down when he is proving a point he proves it good.
Judge Gantry kind of has a akward personality for a judge.
Judge gantry said the trial was over but now he is restarting it? will this be the second book in the series about.
Theo was puzzled by the case
The funeral was a "blast" as described in the book
Cheepe's brother got taken to jail.
The book is very interesting how is this going to end.
I think Theodore is gaining a better relationship with his father.
In the book Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer, Theodore’s knowledge of the law gives him the strength he needs to stand toe to toe with adult lawyers in the courtroom. Theodore proves that he is a smart, brave young man. He shows this in many ways throughout the book. Theodore shows his knowledge and bravery by helping out his friends that have run into trouble with the law. He is not scared to put himself out there to help out his friends even in adult situations. He also shows his knowledge and bravery when he works hard to solve a case that would usually have to be figured out by someone who went to law school, not middle school. Theo shows that he will help solve the case while being in the tough position of keeping a witness protected, something difficult for anyone, especially a kid. Theodore used his smarts and bravery to go on a journey to solve important cases.
Theodore showed he was a very self-confident, brave person from a young age. “At the age of thirteen, Theo was still undecided about his future. One day he dreamed of being a famous trial lawyer, one who handled the biggest cases and never lost before juries. The next day he dreamed of being a great judge, noted for his wisdom and fairness.” Page 6. Theo knew the law and he knew he wanted to use his knowledge to help people that needed it. Theo loved his government class because that class dealt with the law, and Theo knew his stuff. “Even Mr. Mount was nodding along. He was the faculty advisor for the Eighth-Grade Debate Team, and, not surprisingly, Theodore Boone was his star. He’d never had a student as quick on his feet.” Page 25.
Theo used his knowledge of the law to fight for his friends that were in trouble with the law. He was not intimidated by the adults; he just wanted to help his friends. Theo gave advice to a friend whose family was having bankruptcy problems. He also helped out his friend Hallie when her dog escaped from home and ended up at the pound. ““When can I get him?” Hallie asked. “Animal court is held from four until six each afternoon, four days a week, closed on Monday. Can you be in Court this afternoon?” “I guess, but don’t I need my parents?” “Nope, I’ll be there. I’ve done it before.”” Page 143. Theo was able to argue to the judge and get Hallie’s dog released without having to pay a fine.
Theo was also very interested in the big case going on in his town, the murder of Mrs. Duffy. Theo wanted to learn everything about the case so he even got his government class to be allowed to go to watch on the first day of the trial. The government’s case was not very good because they did not have a lot of evidence against the defendant, Mr. Duffy, even though most people thought Mr. Duffy was guilty. Theo was smart enough to know that just thinking Mr. Duffy was guilty would not be enough. Theo’s government class pretended they were the jury on the case and Theo could not find Mr. Duffy guilty. “Sorry, but I can’t vote. I think he is guilty, but I don’t see how the State can prove its case. All they can prove is motive, maybe.” Page 74
Theo really shows his bravery and knowledge of the law when he is given evidence of Mr. Duffy’s guilt. Theo is told in confidence that there was a witness that saw a man (Mr. Duffy) entering Mrs. Duffy’s house just before she was killed. He is also given gloves that can help prove that Mr. Duffy is the murderer. The witness is scared to come forward because he is in the country illegally. Theo wants to protect his witness, but also wants to make sure Mr. Duffy is not able to get away with murder. Theo discussed the situation with his uncle Ike and his uncle at first told Theo to just forget about the witness and not do anything. “Then what should I do, Ike?” “Leave it alone, Theo. Don’t stick your nose into this mess. It’s no place for a kid. It’s no place for an adult. The jury is about to make the wrong decision, but based on the evidence you can’t blame them. The system doesn’t always work, you know. Look at all the innocent people who’ve been sent to death row. Look at the guilty people who get off. Mistakes happen, Theo. Leave it alone.” “But this mistake hasn’t happened yet and it can be prevented.”” Page 157-158. Theo was not willing to let Mr. Duffy get away with murder. He worked hard to figure out a way to be smart enough to protect his witness while at the same time being brave enough to go up against a murderer and prove him guilty.
Theo showed how brave he was when he made the decision to go to the judge in the case, Judge Gantry, and tell him about the new evidence. ““Seems to me he should be in school right about now. This is not exactly a matter for a child.&rdqu
It seems that my essay was cut off. This is the rest of my theories & Conclusions essay for Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer.
Theo showed how brave he was when he made the decision to go to the judge in the case, Judge Gantry, and tell him about the new evidence. ““Seems to me he should be in school right about now. This is not exactly a matter for a child.” First, Theo actually preferred to be in school at that moment. Second, the use of the word child really irritated him. Theo said slowly,”Because, Judge, I know who the witness is. They don’t, but I do.”” Page 196. Theo made sure he still protected his witness but he also made sure the judge knew about the evidence against Mr. Duffy. Theo helped arrange for the Judge to meet the witness in private and Theo showed pictures of people to the witness while the Judge watched. One of the pictures was of Mr. Duffy. When that picture was shown to the witness he identified Mr. Duffy as the murderer. “Let the record show, Your Honor, that the witness has just identified the defendant, Mr. Peter Duffy.” “Got it Theo,” Gantry said. Page 255. Theo had done his job. He kept the witness private, but also made sure the evidence against Mr. Duffy had come out.
Throughout the book Theo showed his knowledge of the law and his bravery in fighting for the law. He showed this in fighting for his friends in court, and fighting to make sure a man did not get away with murder in court. Theo did not let his age get in the way of anything. He was young but smart. He was young but brave. He fought for what was right and his knowledge and bravery helped him to do that.
