A Day In The Life Of a Gent

Career Shadowing Juvenile Justice Center

Today we went to the Juvenile Justice Center to career shadow Judge Rini.  We sat in on a couple arraignments and one review.  They were all good and it gave me a good taste of how juvenile court works. Judge Rini said that a lot of the young men that come in her court don’t know the constitution which was very interesting and made me want to make sure I never forget the constitution. I got to sit in the judges chair and they took great care of us. We also met Judge Ryan, Magistrate Rucker & Magistrate Nickerson. If your wondering what’s the difference between a judge and a magistrate, its a $70,000 difference. We had a great tour around the building it was kinda like a behind the scenes type of deal. Even though I would never do anything stupid that could hurt my future, today’s experience made me really look at life and I definitely don’t ever want to stand in front of a judge. -Jireh Jackson
