An opening statement should be clear, and to the point, in a sincere way. It is important to only state facts and get the jury to relate to the case at his point. For example,ÊDue to the fact that the area that was vandalized was a high traffic area, and the subject matter was vulgar and inappropriate,Êit was important to remove it as quickly as possible.
