Overview

Caught in a web of circumstances, a proudly independent teen, along with three others, finds himself on trial for a vicious crime he did not commit.


A convenience store has been robbed, its African-American staff and customers brutally beaten. Francis Kelly naively believes he cannot be convicted for something he didn't do, in spite of his dowdy female lawyer and a justice system he considers flawed and out of date. But as each witness testifies and the zealous prosecutor presents piece after piece of evidence, his smug self-assurance fades.


He has no alibi. He has no defense. The evidence is overwhelming. His independence, his freedom, and his entire future are on the brink of destruction. Then it gets worse! In All Rise we experience the drama of the courtroom as it really exists and the emotions of an innocent teen trapped in its machinery.

Paul Wagner, a graduate of South High School in Denver and Colorado State University, has published short stories in scores of magazines and on the World Wide Web. He edits the internet magazine About Teens.

    NEW ANGLE TO COURTROOM DRAMA

    What's new about 'the accused is innocent?' In this book it's the fact that the accused is a teenager being tried as an adult. The author puts us inside the teen's head to share his frustrations, anger, fear, and helplessness as the relentless machinery of American justice grinds. Our hero is no Perry Mason. Neither is his frumpish female lawyer. So who's to rescue him? The system and circumstantial evidence seem unbeatable. This is a good story, with characters as real as the kid(s) next door.
