Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963.The HSCA concluded that a shot from the grassy knoll by an unknown person missed Kennedy. Oswald is shown in a New Orleans police mug shot taken in August, 1963 during a street disturbance and separately below in a file photo. Regarding the mock trial: A senior judge from the Harris County Criminal Court will preside over the event with the jury selected from the Harris County jury pool.
