Step-by-step explanation

 create a case brief of Illinois v. Lara (Ill. App. 1st Dist. 2011)  
Your case brief should contain the following elements (and those elements should be separated into sections:
 

Case citation
Illinois Highest Court |THE PEOPLE OF THE JURISDICTION OF ILLINOIS, Appellant, v. JASON LARA, Appellee | The case number 112370.February 7, 2013.
 

Facts of the case
Upon putting his thumb through a female of  8 year old girl, this appellant, Jason Lara, was held liable for two counts of malignant unlawful child molestation. Jason challenged his sentence, claiming the same Prosecution had resigned to acknowledge this  offensive line corpus delicti by presenting no information rather than his admissions. The same tribunal upheld Jason's objection.
 

Procedural History
Given of  lack of corpus delicti in the PCSA, Lara demands that his charges be downgraded to ACSA. According to the Court, there is sufficient documentation to sustain ACSA, though not adequate to prosecute Lara with PCSA. The tribunal overturns PCSA's verdicts and clears Lara of the accusations.
 

Issue(s)
Is it necessary for the plaintiff's admission to be substantiated by facts to be convicted?
Throughout this case, the question would be whether the government could present any information other than the plaintiff's self-incriminating confession.
 

Rule(s)/Holding(s)
This corpus delicti should always be proven by certain proof other than a perpetrator's acknowledgment.
 

Rationale
Jason Lara was convicted of two charges of precocious unlawful child molestation (PCSA) after placing his hand into the genitalia of J.O., an eight-year-old girl. On appealing, Jason claims that the Court presented no evidence of the team's offensive corpus delicti since no proof verifying Jason's statement that he inserted his fingertip inside J.O. was presented. We concur. Excluding the statement, the Country's data proves a conviction of only the smaller charge of violent sentences sexual abuse (ACSA). As a result, we reverse Jason's PCSA offenses, downgrade his PCSA charges to ACSA judgments, and detain him for punishment on the ACSA verdicts.
