Crossroads students complete mock trial

BIG RAPIDS — A jury of her Crossroads Charter Academy third-graders found Gold E. Locks (Char Lindsay) guilty of having bad manners Thursday morning. The speedy trial pitted the young girl against Babe E. Bear (Paige Roman), Mom A. Bear (Genevieve Goerhig) and Pop A. Bear (Keagon Kostecki), who accused her of eating their porridge, sitting in their chairs and breaking one of them and sleeping in their beds. Presided over by Mecosta County Probate Court Judge Tyler Thompson and trial judge Vance Lockerby, the trial ended with Lockerby sentencing the defendant to 100 years in jail. A tradition dating back more than 30 years, each spring, probate courts in Mecosta and Osceola counties host the local schools for the mock trials. (Pioneer photos/Brandon Fountain)
