Goldilocks has landed in court several times on charges surrounding what appears to be her penchant for breaking into bears homes and stealing porridge. This time, a jury of her peers wasn’t charmed by her innocent smile or persuaded by her creative excuses. They found her guilty of trespassing and theft in a mock trial in Judge Linda Marquis’ courtroom at the Family Division of District Court. It was part of the Take Your Kids to Work Day events open to students who wanted to participate. Three junior judges sentenced the fairy-tale sweetheart to a one-month grounding with no electronic devices. Judge Marquis, the Public defenders Office, the District Attorney’s Office and attorneys took part in the mock trial to teach children about the justice system.

A class of fourth graders got an education on the justice system when they sat through the court calendar of District Court Judge Douglas Herndon. They then got to test their chops in a court of law with a mock trial: The Ministry of Magic vs. Harry Potter. The students from the Meadows School were prepped by their teacher for their day in court. They played the roles of judges, jury, attorneys and witnesses. The fabulous fourth graders peppered Judge Herndon with questions; he in turn, grilled them about what they learned. They appeared to have learned a lot. Two more mock trials are scheduled with Judge Herndon April 18 and May 4 at 10 a.m. in courtroom 16D at the Regional Justice Center.
