SIMS on Court TV

I stayed home sick today and I was watching one of those court shows on television. One of the cases involved a thirteen year old boy who threw a mudball at his friend and accidentally hit the neighbors truck causing damage. The boy created an animated reinactment of the incident. They did not say what program he used but it looked like the SIMS. He created the scene showing how and where he threw the mudball. It demonstrated how his friend ducked as he threw it and instead hit the truck. The boy was trying to prove that he did not do this malicously. The judge was so impressed and so was I. I thought that this was a great idea on the boys part. This was jus another way to show how this type of animation could be used in today's world.
