Mock Trials Coming This Fall!

The Kristen Nicole Stevens Mock Trials, an experiential learning exercise, sponsored by the Courts and Criminal Procedure class of the Sociology and Criminal Justice Department are scheduled the following dates for fall 2015: October 15, November 3, November 17 and December 1 in the Traditions Room of the Sam Rayburn Student Center. The time is 12:30-1:45pm. These Mock trials are dedicated to the memory of Kristen Stevens, an outstanding 2013 TAMUC graduate and criminal justice major who passed away August 30, 2015. All are invited to attend.


I am saddened to inform you that one of our recent graduates, Kristen Stevens, was killed in a car accident this past Sunday.  Kristen was a fabulous student in the Criminal Justice program, and I am sure many of you remember her fondly from your courses.
