LCC & YLCC: Law and Justice Day (YLCC Perspective)
May 9, 2012
By: Leslie Haynes
YLCC day for May was combined with LCC for our law and justice day. The day had its pros and cons. We started out the morning meeting our LCC partner for the day and eating Jack’s biscuits, which were really good! 🙂 In the morning sessions, we heard from a representative from the Calhoun/Cleburne County Drug Task Force, the District Attorney and his Chief Assistant, and a few others. It was interesting hearing about different jobs and experiences these people have had. Before lunch, we went to the Calhoun County Courthouse to sit in the Carr murder trial. I really enjoyed the trial, and have enjoyed keeping up with the trial in the paper since then.
Following the trial we went to the Calhoun County Jail, where lunch was provided for us. I did try it, but personally did not like it. After lunch we toured the jail; I had no idea there were so many people in our county jail! Overall, I really enjoyed the day and have become much more interested in law enforcement and government than I was before.
