The Teen Court program recently had its first trial of the year at Glen Cove City Hall. The program serves as an educational experience for students and is operated in conjunction with Judge Richard McCord and Glen Cove City Court. Through the course, students learn about public speaking and the judicial process. In their first trial, Glen Cove High School students Yaire Tolentino, Nicolai Glouchkov, Antonio De Luca and Colin Gallagher served as prosecuting attorneys representing the people of the State of New York while Axelle Labaw, Elijah James and Elana Greim served as defense attorneys for a teen defendant. Sophomore Allyna James acted as judge, and the remaining Teen Court students served as jury members.  Teen Court will have one more trial in January before preparations begin for their second half trials, which will take place in May and June.
