Toronto Catholic District School Board

Mock Trial - Grade 6
 
The Grade 6 students participated in the annual Mock Trial, which is sponsored by the Ontario Bar Association to celebrate Law Week. Our special guest, Ms. Gena Argitis who specializes in litigation law, judged the trial of R vs Quirky. This was the second year that Ms. Argitis has adjudicated at the Mock Trial at Precious Blood; we thank her for generously giving her time to the students of Grade 6.
 
The outcome of the trial according to the consensus of the jury was that Quirky was guilty of theft under $5000. Our judge fined Quirky a $100 but as well pointed out to the students that a not guilty decision would have been justified as well because of the defendant's lack of knowledge of the rules of law on Earth.
