Two classes of third graders from the Las Vegas Day School held mock trials in Judge Jennifer Togliatti’s courtroom. The first class put fairy-tale sweetheart Goldilocks on trial for bad manners. Junior attorneys called witnesses including the entire Bear family and presented evidence including Baby Bear’s broken chair. A jury of her peers took copious notes, deliberated and found the accused guilty. Goldilocks was cuffed.
The second class heard the case against the Big Bad Wolf, who now goes by B. B. Wolf. An expert witness and others testified against the wolf who claimed he was just paying a visit to a friend.
The mock trials are a fun way for young students to learn about the justice system and get a feel for legal careers.
