BCHS One of Only 18 California Schools to Host Live DUI Court
Bradshaw Christian High School had the opportunity to host a DUI “live” Court. This was a great experience for our students to witness what a sentencing looks like for a person with a DUI offense. Judge Curtis M. Fiorini had the opportunity to speak with our students about the consequences of drinking and driving. The defendant was also able to speak to the heavy consequences of making the decision to get behind the wheel after drinking with friends. Students were able to ask questions to local officers and the judge. It was an educational, eye-opening experience for our student body. The message to students, “Have a plan!” Ultimately, don’t ingest any illegal substance, but have a plan if you find yourself in a situation where either you or a driver is making the unfortunate choice to drive while under the influence. Call a prearranged, trusted adult to come to your assistance, without judgement, but rather with gratefulness for your smart choice.
Angela Kellogg, Executive Director of the Real DUI Court in Schools Program said, “I appreciate the politeness and well behaved students that are at Bradshaw.” The officers also expressed the joy it was to show our students the different activities they did during lunch time on Friday, including field sobriety tests. Overall, it was a positive experience for our students.
