RCW Fairy Tale Crime Story
Assignment due Monday, October 6th.

Bedtime stories should not be so violent!
Write/type a modern day version of an assigned fairy tale story and insert the applicable RCW statute that would describe the crime(s) that occur. Your analysis of each crime should include language that effectively incorporates the vocabulary terms mens rea, actus reas, culpable, proximate cause and the applicable mental state according to Washington State Law. For each crime, state whether it is a misdemeanor or felony and explain why. What is the punishment for each crime in this State?

Note: There will be a "spot check" progress grade on this Friday (October 3rd) at the end of class.

Two methods of completing this assignment:

1. Type a story (500-1000 words) and embed your legal analysis into it.

2. Copy-paste graphics and images (draw if you are a good artist!) onto a poster board and show in sequence the major crimes occurring in your story. Type a post card sized summary of the criminal statutes that describe each event as outlined above. Consider this poster as an educational poster for the uninformed concerning Washington State Criminal Law.
