It was a case that made the headlines.
The mob has murdered the daughter of a US Senator and the local brass has pulled out all the stops to find the guilty party. Accordingly, they have summoned a Federal Grand Jury to investigate the evidence and issue an indictment for murder. The problem is that there are three possible suspects. Each had opportunity, means, and possibly a motive, so who should be taken to trial? That is your job to decide. The Generation Joshua iObject teen track places you in the seat of one of the most powerful citizen judicial roles in the country, a federal Grand Jury.
The Generation Joshua iObject program puts participants on the front lines of the judicial system, allowing them to actually see the evidence that is used to bring people to trial, and the difficulties that face a system of justice. We provide a view of the justice system in the United States that is rarely seen but is vital to how we serve justice in America. Students get to question witnesses, examine evidence and learn what is and is not allowed in testimony while working to solve a perplexing murder from the 1930s. We intersperse the hands-on learning with discussions about what it means to be an engaged citizen, America's Judeo-Christian Heritage, and standing up for what is right.
You determine if the prosecution has enough evidence to bring a suspect to trial or if the prosecution seems to be targeting an innocent man. The Grand Jury is a constitutional shield to prevent a prosecutor from charging someone with a crime without sufficient evidence, and also acts to ensure that the guilty are actively prosecuted. You will be given the chance to determine who is innocent and who should be charged. And maybe, just maybe, you will ensure that justice is carried out. We invite you to be part of Generation Joshua's newest teen track iObject.
