Keller Law Offices is proud to announce the 4th year of its Annual Scholarship for Higher Education. We understand that there are a lot of outstanding young people who, without financial assistance, would not be able to go to college. To help open the door to the world of higher education, Keller Law Offices is offering a $1,000 scholarship to the student who submits the strongest essay focusing on the given topic.
Write an essay on the following topic:
Describe an incident or write a fictional story of how someone got falsely accused of a crime and how they handled it. Feel free to leave an open ending but be sure to include enough details to make it interesting. Your story should include the alleged crime, the penalty the defendant would face in your state if convicted, and an anecdote of how they dealt with the situation.
