The following is a transcript of the recent hearing of the

Curtis brothers.

RANDY

L: Randy were you there the night of Bobs death?

R: Yes your honor.

L: What happened that night and how did it happen?

R: Well it all started when we all saw the two Greasers
(Pony and Johnny) in the park. We were completely drunk
and had no idea what we were doing so I guess we all just
wanted to beat the two of them up, no really big reason it is
just that the we hate the Greasers and the Greasers hate us.

So we got out of the car and started to gang beat
pony, when I think of it now it is kind of harsh, we mostly
just tried to drown him but we ended up not harming either
one of them that much it was Bob that was going to pay the
consequence. I turned around and there was my best friend

Bob laying there, choking over blood and dieing right before
my eyes. I had no idea what to do so I ran.

L: Thank you Randy you my go sit back down
now I would like to call Sherri Vallance to the stand
please.

Cherry Vallance

L: So how much of the murder do you know about?

S:Well awile ago I had gone to the Drive In Movies.

Bob and Randy had been drinking lots that night so we
decided to leave them there alone.

We met Pony boy and Johnny, we had stayed with them
most of the night. Bob and Randy saw Marsha and I with
them and I guess they got a little jelous, and they looked
very mad at pony and Johnny.

I donít really know what happened when they
murdered Bob but I know that Im still aching from it.

L: Thank you Cherry

L: We call Darry curtis to the stand please.

L: Darry were you very good friends with Dally?

D: Yes I was your honor we were the best of friends.

missing and was wanted for murder?

D: I cried all day long every day and I searched the city
for him every day also.

L: Thank you , you may have a seat now.

L: I call Soda Pop Curtis to the stand please.

L: Soda Pop what happened before Pony Boy ran off
out of your house and went missing?

SP: Well Pony came home late the night he left and we
were up all night worried sick about him. Well when he did
come home I guess Darry was a bit mad so I guess we all got
into a little yelling fight and darry got very mad and ended
up hitting Pony, and that was when Pony left and didnít
come back till a week ago.

L: Thank you Soda Pop you may have a seat now too.
