Mock Trial: The Impact of Consequences
The November 18th Mock Trial at a student assembly underscored the life altering consequences of impaired driving. The Honorable Judge Rebecca M. Olivier, First Parish Court Judge for Jefferson Parish and a 1982 Dominican graduate, presided over the trial. David Bravo was the defense attorney and Amanda Calogero, an Assistant District Attorney, was the prosecuting attorney. After testimonies from police, students and parents who were actors in the earlier Mock Crash, the jury of 12 students rendered their verdict.
