Mock California DUI at high school

California DUI attorney news

High School students in Vallejo are learning about the legal consequences of a California DUI - drunk driving arrest today.

More than 100 students in the government and economics class are serving as advisory jurors in the California DUI trial at the school of 27-year-old Michael Campbell, of Vallejo, who was arrested for drunken driving in March 2007, California DUI attorneys said.

Campbell is being tried before Commissioner Raymond Wieser in the school's theater. Deputy District Attorney Robert Jones is trying the California DUI case and Deputy Public Defender / California DUI lawyer Dawn Polvorosa is representing Campbell, California DUI lawyers report.

The students will deliberate and advise Wieser of their decision but Wieser will render a verdict, California DUI attorneys suspect.

Jesse Bethel is one of four high schools in Solano County scheduled to host an actual DUI trial this year, California DUI attorneys are told. It is part of the DUI Court in the Schools Program funded through a grant from the Administrative Office of the Courts, California DUI lawyers beleive.

After the California DUI trial, Wieser will participate in an interactive civic lesson with the students, California DUI lawyers understand. Representatives from west Contra Costa County also are attending the trial with the intention of hosting one in their jurisdiction, according to California DUI attorneys.
