I need the paper to follow the California Criminal Trial process like the pictures I uploaded. You need to define each step in the process and also explain the California case selected and exactly explain each step and what happened in the case. You can only use the school textbook online for reference. I will provide my login information so you can access the textbook. This paper is very intensive and the rules and guidelines must be followed. I will pay 35.00 for the paper including the down payment charge.
