Woodward Trial Sketch 1

Last month I got to watch parts of the Lynn Woodward trial here in Austin, Texas. The allegations were that she drove under the influence of drugs and killed one person and injured another when she ran over them. She had been released from the hospital that morning and told not to drive for six months. Later that afternoon she hit a car and two people. The jury convicted her and she received a sentence of 20 years. In this painting you have the various players: prosecutor, witness, court reporter and the victim's best friend (the person that died).
The defendant and one of her attorneys. Her expression rarely changed.
