Paper format:Important!!

The paper should be written in essay format.I want the paragraphs to be single spaced, then double space between paragraphs.Number the paragraphs according to the questions above.In other words, at the beginning of the paragraph where you will answer the question about the prosecutor, number the paragraph “6.”I should see the numbers 1 - 12 in your paper so I can easily find each of your answers.

Again, the paragraphs themselves must be single spaced, but double space between paragraphs.

Your paper must be approximately 3-4 pages long.It needs to include a cover page and a References page, in APA format, these two pages do not count in the 3-4 page requirement.
