Earlier this past February, the Criminal Justice class here at JRTI had mock court trials to teach the students what it would be like in a real life scenario of a court trial. The case was called “The People vs Price” and was based on a trial where Arson was the crime committed. Students in the class played the Judge, Plaintiffs, Lawyers, the Defendant, and Witnesses; Mr. Vanorsdale was doing his part as the Defendants Lawyer.

Many of the students in the class enjoyed the entire mock trial, claiming that it will help them if they decide to go in the field in the near future ahead after they graduate from their respective high schools.
