     ESSAY QUESTION

     

    On a sunny, breezy, Sunday afternoon in late October 2016, Regina George was holding a town hall style campaign meeting in hopes of securing her bid for the United States Senate.

     

    Being back in her hometown was exciting for Regina given the travel associated with her busy campaign schedule. As such, Regina opted to leave straight from the campaign event and meet up with some friends at a restaurant in downtown.

     

    While pulling into a parking space at “The,” the hip new spot in the Arts District, Regina was suddenly rear ended by a 2004 Honda Civic. The person who hit Regina got out of her car and yelled, “You’re a terrible person Regina, I hope you die.” The person then ripped the license plate off of Regina’s car and put it into her purse before running away.

     

    The next day a newspaper published a report by Cady Heron. The article by Heron claimed that Regina, in a drunken stupor, backed into Cady’s car causing severe injuries.

     

    Needless to say, Regina is furious. Not only is Regina in pain following the car accident, but the story from Cady is hurting the campaign.

     

    Regina will be meeting with your boss, the District Attorney for the County of Ventura to learn what crimes Cady will be charged with. The District Attorney has asked you to prepare a memorandum describing what crimes Cady can be charged with and why.
