DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The annual meeting of the State Bar of Texas is underway in Dallas and this afternoon’s events include “The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald.” Today’s mock trial is being held to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK.
Taking part in the trial that never took place will be the Honorable Sarah Saldaña, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, on behalf of the prosecution. Attorney Toby Shook will represent the defense and Judge Martin Hoffman, of the District Court of Dallas County, will preside over the proceedings.
The mock trial will only be two hours long. “The actual trial would have taken two or three months.” said Judge Hoffman.
Over 40 exhibits are expected to be used during the trail, including the Zapruder film.
