TCHS Takes Over Courthouse

TCHS Takes Over Courthouse

On 04/04/18, TCHS’s Criminal Justice Department took a group of six students to the Federal Courthouse located in Fort Pierce. Judge Maynard and Judge Rosenberg put together a case about online threats made by an individual. Students were divided into three groups: prosecution, defense, and jury. All three groups worked with true professionals in the field such as lawyers, public defenders, and court staff members. As soon as TCHS was prepared for the mock trial, they went into a real courtroom and performed.
The two judges and all other professionals (a total of eight) guided our students all of the time while providing  them with feedback and coaching them.
It was just phenomenal. These people went above and beyond.
