Aldine students gets hands-on look at judicial system

Aldine High School Law & Public Service Academy attended an educational experience on Thursday March 27, at the Harris County Criminal Justice Center County Criminal Court at Law #6 with Judge Larry Standley presiding.
The Honorable Judge Larry Standley is a graduate of Aldine High School class of 1975. While in the court room the students observed the court room process, such as plea agreements, plea bargains, seeing defendants being placed on community supervision (adult probation), and jail sentencing.
Judge Standley and the chief prosecutor interacted with the students about the courtroom process. The deputies and judge allowed the students to tour the entire courtroom such as the hold over cells where non-bond defendants are held in the courtroom and the judges chambers. The students walked away with a better understanding about the criminal justice and courtroom process.
