Mock Jail

Crosby-Ironton seventh-grader Matthew Christopher carries his bed linens and towel Monday with Lt. Dan Stenson, director of operations for the Crow Wing County Jail. Matthew, along with another student, went through a mock judicial sentencing hearing.

After presentations by County Attorney Don Ryan, Assistant County Attorney David Hermerding and sentencing by Judge Kristine DeMay, Matthew was “mock booked” at the jail and placed in a cell along with his classmates. The experiences are part of the C-I Youth in Government Mentoring Project.
