imagine that Julias Caesar had not been assassinated, but had been put on trial for abusing his power

Imagine that Julius Caesar had not been assassinated but had been put on trial, charged with abusing his power. Choose the role of the prosecutor or the defense attorney and write your closing argument to try to convince the jury of Caesar’s guilt or innocence. Use specific evidence (examples, details, quotes) from Suetonius’s Life of Julius Caesar, the textbook, and class notes to support your argument. While making your argument, note one piece of evidence that your opponent might try to use to make his case. After building this counter argument, undermine it to show that your opponent does not have a strong case. Your speech should be 1-2 pages typed, doubled spaced using Times New Roman 12-point font.

Citation example 1: According to Suetonius, Julius Caesar reduced debts for Roman citizens.
