At the end of class today you received a handout detailing a real-life juvenile court case. Please read through the background and details of the crime, and then write down your response to the "You be the judge..." prompt. Due tomorrow: Thursday 11/9
Tomorrow you will meet with others who read the same case, discuss what decision you came to, and then see what the real judge in this situation decided, as well as what the outcome was for the young defendant in the case.
