The criminal trial of a man accused of eluding a police officer and speeding will be held at the Homsey Family Moot Courtroom at the Oklahoma City University School of Law. Judge Jerry D. Bass, a former law student at Oklahoma City University, will be presiding over the trial set to begin jury selection on October 17, 2012. The trial will move to the mock courtroom after jury selection and will return to the Oklahoma County Courthouse for closing arguments and jury deliberations.
There have been previous attempts made to bring trials to the OCU Moot Courtroom, but security issues have delayed the requests. The 550 law students at OCU are extremely excited to have the learning experience. Holding the trial on campus will expose the law students to actual criminal trial litigation.
