Crescenta Valley High School has advanced to the semi-finals of a mock trial competition that began with 84 high schools in Los Angeles County in early November.
The 20 students on Crescenta Valley’s team have advanced to beat out 80 other schools to reach the final four, and will compete against three other unidentified schools in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom Dec. 3.
The case? A car accident in which texting may have been involved. During the mock trials, the students act as prosecutors or defense attorneys.
