STVM Mock Trial's District Recap

Jan 28, 2021

The STVM Mock Trial team competed virtually in Saturday's District competition, facing teams from around the entire State of Ohio. Despite the various challenges of the virtual format this year, our team stepped up and performed exceptionally well in arguing for both sides of a fictional murder case. One team of students argued to vacate a defendant's guilty plea based on the revelation of exculpatory evidence, while the other side argued on behalf of the murder victim's family. Though our team did not advance to the Regional competition, they put forth a great effort and displayed a remarkable understanding of criminal procedure and case law.

We are very appreciative of the guidance and leadership from our legal advisers, Mrs. Theresa Scahill and Ms. Cristiana Sibley, and we would like to offer a final farewell to the five competing seniors on the Mock Trial team!
