Events of Criminal Case
Julian was the one who reported about the murder of Freddy moments after the incident. When Jones and the player interrogated him, he said that he heard some people arguing while walking down the park. As he stopped, he heard someone running away and then he went to see what happened, finding Freddy's body. He thus concluded that he and Freddy were friends and that they used to hang out at the abandoned house together.
Julian was due for a second conversation when Ramona Stewart stated that he and Freddy had robbed Alden Greene's mansion together. Julian, however, denied and claimed that he had declined Freddy's offer and then went to the park to smoke a cigarette. He then saw Freddy running inside the park, being followed by someone from the Greene mansion and not long after, he found him dead.
At the climax of the investigation, Julian was incriminated as the one behind Freddy's murder. Julian stated that he and Freddy were celebrating at Cooper Park after the duo successfully robbed the Greene mansion. Freddy was very happy and became fascinated by the stolen crossbow, thinking of it as a trophy, thus handing it to Julian for a celebration. However, the crossbow was extremely old and rusty, and as a result fired on its own and went right through Freddy's left eye, killing him instantly.
Even though the murder was an accident, Julian was still arrested for taking part in a crime, leading him to get a 1-year sentence in a juvenile detention center.
Five years later, Julian—now a student at Fairview High—became a suspect again after Cathy found his fingerprints on the victim's wallet. He was disgruntled to see the player and Gloria, believing that the former was back to ruin his life more. However, he denied stealing Vicky's wallet when Gloria informed him of her death. He claimed that the victim had dropped her wallet at the cafeteria and that he had given it back to her, not wanting to have another run-in with the police after his release.
Later on, Julian found himself in trouble when Rupert isolated DNA samples of not only his, but also the victim's, on a sample of cannabis found in the science classroom. He was shocked to see he was busted and then confessed to smoking the cannabis so he could relax. Vicky had found out and begged him for some since she was stressed out because of her mother. He had agreed to sell an ounce but since she never paid him for it, he resorted to stealing her wallet.
Julian was found innocent of Vicky's death after Coach Kirk was arrested. However, Julian was still in custody when his physician Dr Greg Gibbs visited Jones and the player. Dr Gibbs requested that Julian should be released for psychological therapy due to his behavior showing that he had untreated depression.
After finding Julian's laptop inside the science classroom, Gabriel found proof that Julian was indeed depressed via an autobiographical novel he wrote. He was angered by the fact that no one trusted him, but Jones assured him that Dr Gibbs and Gabriel did not think of him as a murderer, but a bright, yet highly depressed young man. Julian then thankfully accepted the agreement of his charges being dropped in exchange for his willingness to try therapy with Dr Gibbs.
