A starting point could be to search for the case online. Cases SOMETIMES have summaries, if they are noteworthy. As a sidenote, don't submit any papers to your instructor as "moke" trial - you want to write "mock trial." Good luck

A charge/arrest/summons is only an accusation and is not a conviction. The defendant in this instance should definitely hire and attorney and discuss his defenses to the charge. Good luck.

Not enough information is provided here, however the charge can be probated, it is is punishable with incarceration and as such, I would recommend that the defendant hire a criminal defense lawyer to begin preparing a defense of the matter in hope of achieving the best outcome.

Yes, your landlord can move to evict him only. If your landlord is willing to help, have them meet with a real estate attorney to make sure they are following proper eviction procedure, otherwise your boyfriend could have a potential wrongful eviction suit.
