CourtCares, an initiative by Judge Joe L. Webster and staff of the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina in Durham was launched April 11 to reach out to students in the Durham Public Schools. Eighth grade students from Shepherd Middle School were introduced to the federal court system, encouraged to stay on the right side of the law and exposed to life-long strategies for leading successful and healthy lives. Judge Webster conducted a brief mock criminal trial, which was followed by a tour of the judicial chambers, lock-up facility and an informal question and answer period.
