The Court of Appeals and The State of Oregon V. Kipland Philip Kinkel
On July 31, 2002, an appeal was submitted on the behalf of Kipland Philip Kinkel. Judge Haselton is assigned to the appellants case. Kipland “was convicted of four counts of murder and 26 counts of attempted murder.” (Haselton, 2002, para.1) Kipland was only 15 years old at the time of the incident. The defendant was also a freshman at Thurston High School. During the school year of 1998 in Springfield, Oregon Kipland was first arrested for a possession of a handgun. He soon targets his parents in which he killed. The following day Kipland leaves a mark at Thurston High School. Judge Haselton uses ethos, pathos and logos to defend the court’s decision in an excellent manner.
