Abbeville HIgh School Students Tour the Henry County Courthouse

By  | 

Students at one Wiregrass high school got to see the inner workings of a courthouse.

Abbeville High School's law and society class spent the day at the Henry County Courthouse.

They sat in on some misdemeanor court cases and heard from people that have been arrested from DUI's.

Students also attended the Henry County Commission meeting.

Students say it was a great opportunity if they were interested in going in becoming a lawyer.

"This is especially important to me because I want to go into the law field so I got a first hand experience of something I would be able to look forward to in the future," said Kristen Gochett, 11th grader from Abbeville High School.

They also got a chance to tour the courthouse in the afternoon.
