During my time at the Commonwealth Attorney’s office, I have had the opportunity to learn and have more of an understanding about the law and how it works. Being able to shadow Mrs. Persley, I have been able to see what it means to be a Crime Victims Advocate and how important it is to keep everyone involved in the loop. I was able to attend hearings in a death penalty case so the judge could see what could be charged in a trial. I have also attended dockets to see what would happen next for whatever the crime may be. This site has opened my mind more towards either a law or criminal justice degree as I go into college this fall.
