A Day In The Life Of a Gent

Career Shadow Reflection 2

Today we went to the Juvenile Justice Center and career shadowed Judge Rini. The first case we watched was an arraignment. The teen we were sitting in on was being charged with 2 counts of rape, 2 counts of kidnapping, 2 counts of sexual battery, abduction, 2 counts of gross sexual imposition and 1 count of sexual imposition. The second case we watched was a 15 year old boy. He was charged with aggravated robbery and obstructing official bussiness. The third case we watched was a case with 2 boys who were charged with aggravated robbery and obstructing official business. One of the boys was also charged with drug possession and trafficking. We also met other Judges and Magistrates like Judge Ryan, Magistrate Rucker, and Magistrate Nickerson. I had fun today and learned a lot about the Juvenile Court System and how it works. Now I understand a little bit more about how a people get charged, arraigned, and convicted. It made me sad though to see so many kids my age committing such horrible crimes. -Dalen Solomon
