Jury Verdict In: Cinderella Should Have Been Paid!

Put in Bay School Mock TrialPut-in-Bay School sixth-graders ran a mock trial on Thursday morning.  Proceedings were monitored by the Honorable Danita Gilbert Conway, Probate/Juvenile Court Magistrate of Ottawa County.  A magistrate is a licensed attorney in Ohio who is appointed by the Court to conduct hearings in a case, according to the Ohio State Bar Association.  Cinderella brought the case to court, alleging her step-mother and step-sisters forced her to do all the household chores without compensation.

Cinderella, lovely plaintiff!

Fourth and fifth grade students served on the jury and reached a decision of 7-2 in favor of Cinderella.  Testimony by the evil step-sister, Gorgonzola, was the deciding factor.  Gorgonzola claimed hardship in having to pick up a shoe, although she was rewarded with earrings for doing so.
