The challenge for members of the prosecution  team and other criminal justice professionals is to analyze the evidence trail or the gaps left by the defendant,  prepare for the myriad of defense attacks, provide a motive even if none is legally required,  develop your theme and theory in a persuasive manner that makes the crime scene visible and understandable to the trier of fact and achieve this in an ethical and succinct manner.
