SOCRATES DEFENCEMy client, Socrates stands accused of corrupting the youth and not believing in the gods in whom our city of Athens believes. I as his lawyer pleads innocent to the above charges and i will proceed to defend my client with concrete facts. My client's first accuser, Anytus, has a personal vendetta with him. His sole motivation in this is not the charges brought forward to you dear learned friends but his hate for my client. Anytus has always had admiration for my client's friend Alcibiades. As a matter of fact, Anytus is not happy that Alcibiades became friends with my client instead of him. This led him to falsely accuse my client leading him to be brought before you. As we know, my client has done what has not been done in thousands of years in just seventy years that he has lived! Anytus himself should actually be in the dungeons of a prison somewhere for treason but thanks to his opulence and influence, he bribed the jury. Therefore, it will be very dishonorable of this court to accept to have Anytus as an accuser of my clients.As we all know, my client, Socrates, is an avid critique of the current democratic government under the leadership of Anytus. Anytus accusations are fuelled by pure hatred because as we all know him, he doesn't stand a different opinion which makes his claims of leading a democratic government very hilarious! Anytus is basically vexed on behalf of the craftsmen and politicians. His son is a student of my clients and i can't imagine
