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. L: What did you do when you found out that Pony was 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. L: Now last of all I would like to call Pony Boy Curtis to the
