-The defense offers a prior statement given by Anne to police officers at the school that she did not clearly see who made the statement in the hallway.
-Defense offers a witness, Jacob, who testifies that he was in the school hallway when Anne turned to him and said that she just heard students say a bomb had been planted in the school.
