Students in the Marion County Vocational School criminal justice program participated in a 'Mock Trial' Friday.
Marion County Judge Michael Aloi opened his courtroom for the mock first-degree murder trial.
Vocational School teacher Ray Frazier prepared his students by teaching them about the legal process.
Students acted as jurors, lawyers, defendants and witnesses.
Aloi said it is a great way for students to learn what really happens in a courtroom.
