ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND (October 11, 2016) – Approximately 180 high school students from Anne Arundel County will come to court on Thursday, October 13, to learn about the legal and financial consequences of being charged with offenses such as drunk driving.  The students will be taking part in the Schools in the Court program at the Anne Arundel County District Court in Annapolis.  The media are invited to attend.

Spencer, who presides over the Schools in the Court program.  The students will also watch actual court proceedings in criminal cases and meet members of the Maryland State Police K-9 squad.
