We were shown down to the cells several floors beneath the court level. I'll never forget those long stairs leading from the dock in the court room down into the cell area below. It was really interesting to see something you would never normally see, and having our head boy locked in a cell, even if only for a minute or two was amusing. As for the cases the pupils enacted, the first was a drugs case (possession with intent to supply) which our team was prosecuting. The verdict ended in 'not proven' (a controversial verdict which is unique to Scots law). In the second case, we were defending a dangerous driving charge and the accused was found not guilty.
