Though Alicia Cunningham is only a sophomore in high school, she had a taste of being a juror in a trial Tuesday morning.
Cunningham and 11 other Jesse Bethel High School students were chosen to be part of the “advisory jury” in a real DUI trial as part of the annual Solano County DUI Court in Schools Program.
The school’s theater stage was transformed into a court room, complete with a bailiff, court clerk and court reporter.
“It was interesting,” Cunningham said. “There was a lot of information to absorb and think about, knowing that you are a factor in the outcome (of the trial).”
