This mobile application was born out of my love for criminal trials. I, like millions of other trial enthusiasts out there, am fascinated by these trials. I like to know who the players are, what the backstory is, when it happened, how it happened and why it happened. I especially want to know what happens in and out of court. I would watch trials all day long if I could. So, that is why I created Wild About Trial™ because with Wild About Trial™ on your phone or tablet, no matter where you are, you will get up-to-the-minute updates on the trials you are most interested in, all in the palm of your hands. What could be better than that? While we will certainly showcase some celebrity misadventures into the criminal justice system, this is not a celebrity website. This is an App dedicated to real criminal trials and is for people who are simply put, WILD ABOUT TRIAL™.
