Byrneville Elementary 5th Graders ‘On Trial’

May 13, 2017

Fifth grade students from Byrneville Elementary School had the opportunity to visit the M.C. Blanchard Judicial Center on Friday to learn about the judicial process. 

They were able to meet with Judge Scott Duncan and see how trials work, learn the differences between criminal and civil and more. They also had the chance to see holding cells, a visiting judge’s chambers, meet with court reporters and learn how they type so fast and view the surveillance cameras.
