A Day In The Life Of a Gent

Career Shadowing Reflection 1

Today was one of my greatest experiences. I went to the Municipal Court in Downtown Cleveland. I’m honestly shocked at how many domestic violence cases there were. I heard one case where this girl was getting beat by her boyfriend. I dont understand how a young woman that pretty could even go through such a thing. Then, another thing that blew me were the bonds. Like, for instance, if you committed a misdemeanor the bonds went from $5,000 to $50,000. This affected my way of thinking because  I saw the way the people that got in trouble looked and I can’t picture myself in that predicament. The first judge I met was Judge Pinkey Carr. The second one was Judge Emmanuela Groves. The judges together seemed a little mean at times, but that’s just my point of view. -Arthur Gaston
