Albuquerque students get real-life courtroom experience


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Some Albuquerque high schoolers are getting the opportunity to get an inside look at a courtroom.

West Mesa High’s Performing Arts Center was transformed Thursday into a real-life courtroom. It’s part of the Metro Court’s “Courts-to-Schools” program.

Judge Yvette Gonzales will sentence several defendants who have pleaded guilty to a second or subsequent misdemeanor DWI offense.

After their sentencing, each defendant will talk to the students about the impact of drinking and driving.
