Case Background

The victim was a somehow protective father (and the son of the notorious Alden Greene) named Paul Greene, who was found burnt by a prison guard with some banknotes in front of the Grimsborough Prison. The banknotes happened to be used to bail both his detained family members out.

The killer was Julian Ramis, a 13-year-old who has been in the Juvenile Detention Center for a year. The incident started with a bet among the kids in the Center, with Artemis Wordsworth as their leader, despite not reliable for her fraud record; she led the kids to rob mansions, especially the mansion belonged to the Greene family, and had wanted Julian Ramis to be their guide. Feeling unpleased, Jullian rejected her request six times, but finally accepted because the girl threatened him with a baby born in the prison. The kids took the most dangerous weapons including a flamethrower, along with some user manual handbooks and dictionaries. After the robbery, the son of that prison guard, who happened to be one of them and disliked Artemis, suggested to play with the weapons and adults, only to be discovered accidentially by the victim. The victim recgonized Julian for robbing the mansion twice and attempted to scold the boy, but the angered boy with the stolen flamethrower answered the grownup with excessive fire.

After being under arrest once more, Julian Ramis is afraid to meet Judge Olivia Hall again. He does not meet her this time, yet still tried by a not-so-experienced Judge Arthur Mondo, this time treated as an adult "like the guy you (indicating the killer) killed". The sentence is horrifying even for adults: 40 years in prison without chance of parole, 20 years for the murder and 20 years for the robbery.

However, Julian escapes with his overprotective father after the trial.
