Scopes Monkey Trial
Thomas Scopes is a high school teacher accused of wrongly teaching evolution. The teaching of the subject is, of course, against the law. His attorney, Clarence Darrow, is at his side in defense of Scopes. However, his prosecuting attorney, William Jennings Bryan, is very hard to defeat. Scopes argued that the teaching of evolution is not inconsistent with the teachings of the bible. This statement was negatively received from the jury. Ultimately the jury decided that Scopes was guilty, and fined him $100. Bryan won the case.
