The fourth-grade B-Quest students of Cindy Wagner’s class at Holy Ghost Catholic School held court last month.

Students in the school’s accelerated program played the role of prosecutor, defense attorney, witness and juror.

A verdict could not be reached at the end of the trial, resulting in a hung jury.
