AMS 8 Students visit the Courthouse

Last week 8th grade students traveled to the Allegheny County Courthouse for a field trip.  In their Civics classes, students had previously been introduced to the criminal and civil court systems prior to their visit.  Upon their arrival at the courthouse, students were greeted by the Administrative Judge of Allegheny County, the Honorable Judge David Cashman.  Judge Cashman talked to students about his role in the judicial branch and warned them about the consequences of drug and alcohol related crimes.  Next, students visited real criminal court rooms to observe trials in action.
