MADILL, Okla. -- Kids usually don't understand what goes on in courtroom, but on Thursday some local elementary students got to experience it first hand.

Fifth graders from Madill Elementary took part in a mock trial, where the teachers were accused of giving too much homework!

This was all part of Marshall County's ‘Law Day’. To make the trial as real as possible, representatives from the district attorney’s office and sheriff's office took part.

"The student all played the principal roles in the court room, witnesses and jurors and lawyer. They did a fantastic job,” said Judge John Scaggs.

Judge Scaggs answered questions afterwards, and if you were wondering, the teachers were found guilty.

No word on what punishment the kids will give them.
