Allegations made all pointed to her

Evidence bought forth did incur

 

She claimed she was innocent and

Was only used as an instrument

 

If found guilty of committing this crime

She was looking at doing … hard time

  5. Did she or didn’t she?! Is she getting a fair trial? Was she framed? Did/could she have accomplices? Your Six reads like you’ve got the makings of great crime story/mystery!
