Students from Gadsden’s middle schools take part in mock trial | #childpredator | #onlinepredator | #sextrafficing

Some might think the scenario for last week’s mock trial involving students from Gadsden’s three middle schools was far-fetched. 

Members of the actual court system who were present for the event in Gadsden City High School’s auditorium begged to differ. They said it absolutely could’ve come from real-life case files. 

They also said that given the age group involved, the experience should serve as a warning, not just an introduction to the legal system for those present. 

The basics: 

Tasha Blackwell, 14, lives with her mother and two siblings, but spends much time alone because of their work schedules, so she spends a lot of time on her phone. She creates an account on a social media app called STUDY to chat with friends. 

She receives a friend request from someone who calls himself Junior, 16, and they begin conversing regularly and exchanging photos. Junior tells her that he lives with an abusive, alcoholic father, and ultimately, he asks Tasha to run away with him. She agrees, gives her address and sneaks out of the house that night and gets in a car that he’s supposed to be in.
