CHS students conduct mock trial

Campbellsville High School students recently conducted their own murder trial to learn about the process.

 

AP U.S. government students in Susan Dabney’s class recently learned all about how to conduct a criminal trial.

 

To test their knowledge, students portrayed prosecutors, defense attorneys, witnesses, jurors, bailiffs and more during a mock trial to learn about the process.

 

CHS sophomore Jackson Hinton was on trial for murdering his fiance.

 

His classmates Jeremiah Jackson, Leslie McKenzie and Elizabeth Sullivan portrayed his defense attorneys.

 

And classmates Layton Hord, Ryan Kearney and Myles Murrell were the prosecutors.

 

In the end, Dabney, who portrayed a judge during the trial and led students through the process, declared a mistrial.

 

CHS sophomore Natalie Caldwell, who was a bailiff for the trial, asks jurors if they promise to consider all the evidence in the case and come to a fair conclusion.
