The person in the white shirt is Bernie Goetz.   Reference to his case was mentioned in the high school law textbook that we were using at the time.   I thought that it would be interesting to hear from Bernie Goetz himself.   After speaking with him in person and by telephone (mainly telephone) for about two years, he agreed to come into my classroom and speak to my high school  law class.

On June 16, 1987, Bernie Goetz was found not guilty 17 times.   He was found guilty on criminal possession of a gun.

After the criminal trial, Bernie Goetz lost in a multi-million dollar civil trial.
