The United States v Jared NashEdit
Jared Nash was arrested and charged with misprision of a felony. He had gone in and out of the room while his roommate and best friend held a woman hostage and eventually killed her. He hadn't called the police or tried to help her at any point. Critically, he had turned up his music while his friend beat her to death, preventing anyone else from hearing what was happening in the apartment. He was found guilty.
The United States v Caz MurrayEdit
Caz Murray was arrested and charged with making threats against the president when she posted a picture of herself pointing a gun at a picture of the president. Then she later posted that she was locked and loaded and coming for the president. She claimed she meant with her tongue. Sandra and Seth met to try to make a deal, but the meeting was cut short. Seth uncovered that Caz had entered a lottery to get front-row tickets to see the president speak. Seth offered three years of probation, no longer tagging the president on social media, and not being allowed within five miles of the president. Caz happily accepted the deal.
The United States v Guy WatsonEdit
Guy Watson was being charged with bribery in a sporting event because it was believed that he threw a match to a lower-ranked player in order to help his coach win a bet against him. His coach had recently loaned him $20,000, which he said was to bail him out of debt. He said his ankle was injured and he'd wanted to forfeit, but since he was ranked so low, his coach believed Guy could still beat him. Jay worked out a deal for Guy to serve three months, but the plea wouldn't be entered until after he played in the U.S. Open, his dream.
