Answer preview

The defense attorney is on the side of Montresor. His goal is to make sure that Montresor is not guilty at any cost. The final argument of the defense attorney is that Montresor is not guilty based on the following arguments. First, the existing pieces of evidence are not reputable enough to be used before the court. For example, someone can make a false confession if he/she wants to get imprisoned. Besides, there are no facts to justify whether Montresor is telling the truth. Secondly, the defense attorney can request the court to investigate the matter before assuming that the suspect is guilty.
