The Girl Who Wished To Be Skinny

I guess you could say this is kind of a true story... Some of the things in it could be similar to things that have happened to me.... :(

Chapter 22

Court

On the day of court my mom was nervous. She finally got dressed and then my sister drove to the court house. My mom met with her lawyer and he asked "Are you ready?" My mom said "I guess." Then they both walked into the court room and my mom sat at a table with her lawyer. Megan and Amanda were sitting at a table on the opposite side of the room with their lawyer . I looked around and saw Mark sitting in the back row, where almost no one could see him. I smiled when I saw him. Then the judge walked into the room and court started. The judge called Amanda up to the stand and she sat down.

The judge said "Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?"
Amanda said "Yes."
Then my moms lawyer walked over to her and asked "You recall assaulting Sabrina Sims, do you not?"
Amanda said "Yes."
The lawyer said "No further questions."
Then Amanda and Megan's lawyer walked over to her. He asked "Why did you assault Mrs.Sims?"
Amanda said "I don't know, Megan was pressuring me into it and I just broke and went along with her."
The lawyer said "No further questions." Then walked away.
The judge told Amanda she could go set back at the table with her lawyer and she did. Then he called Megan up to the stand and made her swear the oath that he'd made Amanda swear.
Then my moms lawyer stood up and walked to her. Then he said "Why did you assault Mrs.Sims? Did she ever do anything to you?"
Megan said "I heard that she'd been spreading rumors about me."
The lawyer said "Was there any proof of that?"
Megan said "No."
The lawyer said "Then how do you know it was true; and who told you this?"
Megan said "Amanda told me that she'd been spreading the rumors and I don't know if its true."
The lawyer said "Do you know if Amanda lied to you? How do you know if you didn't just hurt and innocent person?"
Megan said "I don't know."
The lawyer said "No further questions." Then he walked away.
The other lawyer didn't have any questions, so the judge let Megan go back to her table. Then they called my mom up to the stand. The judge made her swear the oath and then Megan and Amanda's lawyer walked over.
He said "How do you know that your daughter didn't bring this on herself? How do you know that she didn't spread rumors about Mrs.Counts?"
My mom said "I know because she was my daughter, she would never do anything like that to anyone."
The lawyer said "How do you know that all of the things that she wrote in her diary were not lies? That she didn't do this only for attention?"
My mom said "She would never lie about something this serious and she hates being the center of attention. Anyway why would she care about attention if shes dead."
The lawyer said "No further questions." Then he walked away.
My moms lawyer said he had no questions and then my mom sat back at the table with her lawyer.
The judge said "I'm going to take ten minute recess to decide the faith of Mrs.Counts and Mrs.Morrison." Then he got up and walked into another room.
My mom and her lawyer started talking and Amanda, Megan and there lawyer did the same.
When the recess was up the judge came back into the room and said "Both Amanda Morrison and Megan Counts are sentenced to two years in the Department Of Juvenile Justice."

After that police took Amanda and Megan out of the court room. Their lawyer followed and a few minutes after that the coach and principal walked in and sat at the same table. Then their lawyer followed them in and sat with them. Then the judge called the principal to the stand and made him swear the oath. After that my moms lawyer got up and walked over to him.

My moms lawyer said "Do you understand how serious of a crime rapee is?"
The principal said "Yes."
The lawyer said "Then why did you do such a crime?"
The principal said "I don't know."
The lawyer said "Did you know that you rapiing Mrs.Sims led to her getting pregnant?"
The principal said "No."
The lawyer said "No further questions." Then he walked away.
His lawyer said he had no questions and the principal went back to his table. Then the judge called the coach to the stand and made him swear the oath.
Then my moms lawyer walked over to him and said "Do you understand that you are an accessory to rapee?"'
The coach said "Yes."
The lawyer said "Why did you help Mr.Watts? Why didn't you call the police? Why did you let this girl get rapeed?"
The coach said "I don't know."
The lawyer said "No further questions." Then he walked away.
His lawyer said he had no questions and the coach went back to his table and sat down. The judge called my mom to the stand and she sat down.
The other lawyer walked over to her and asked "How do you know that Mr. Watts and Mr.Green actually did rapee your daughter? What if she was lying?"
My mom said "My daughter would not lie about something like this; and she was pregnant."
The lawyer said "No further questions." Then he walked away and my mom went back to her table.
The judge said "I'm going to take a ten minute recess to decide the faith of Mr.Watts and Mr.Green." Then he got up and went into another room.
My mom and her lawyer started talking again and the coach, the principal and their lawyer did the same.
When the recess was up the judge came back into the room and said "Charles Watts you are sentenced to ten years in prison and Tommy Green you are sentenced to six years in prison."

After that court was over and police took the coach and the principal out of the court room. I smiled and so did my mom, my sister and Mark. After that people began to leave. My sister stayed with my mom and they walked out together. They were some of the last people to leave, along with Mark. After they left the court house my mom went and bought flowers. Then she went to cemetery and put them on my grave.

She whispered "I love you." Then she walked away with my sister and they went home. I stayed there for a while and when I was about to leave I saw Mark walk into the cemetery. He came strait to my grave and just stood there for a few minutes. After that he left and went home to. I followed him and when he got home I went back to my sisters house. When I got there my mom and sister were sitting on the couch talking and having lunch. I could tell they were happy now that court was over and they got what they'd hoped for.
